HISTORY® has teamed up with Texas based restoration expert, Brent Hull, and his company Hull Historical in a new eight episode series “Lone Star Restoration.” With over 20 years’ experience, Hull has become one of the most respected and sought after historical builders in the country. Together with his team, Brent combines the best of today’s technology with time tested and traditional craftsmanship to bring his projects to life. The series will follow Brent and his team as they make it their mission to save America’s architectural history one job at a time.
“Brent not only brings his incredible acumen and expertise to ‘Lone Star Restoration,’ but he reminds us of how culturally significant it is to both preserve and restore these historical structures,” said Paul Cabana, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, HISTORY. “Brent will share his passion and knowledge with our viewers and show all that can be learned about our nation’s history from these important landmarks.”
Brent, accompanied by his loyal Yellow Labrador Retriever Romeo, will undertake a variety of projects throughout the series. From the rescue of a classic red railroad caboose to the resurrection of a prohibition era subterranean liquor vault, “Lone Star Restoration” is all about breathing new life into historic places and objects insuring that each will be around for a long time to come.
Historic preservation is not only Brent’s profession, but his passion as well as he finds joy in seeking out new, exciting projects and challenges. With the help and support of a team that is just as passionate about historical preservation as he is, Brent is able to prove that history is part of every project from the iron nails to the floor boards, the windows and walls as well as what we can do to reestablish this nation’s architectural footprint while celebrating America’s building history.
