Every winter, hundreds of home exhibitors and home-design experts gather at the Pennsylvania Convention Center for the Philly Home Show. This year, the 2-weekend event takes place January 10-12 and January 17-19. The goal: To inspire home owners (and renters) to elevate their spaces. In addition to exhibitors, celebrities from the DIY world make guest appearances at the event. The 2020 Philly Home Show lineup includes Langhorne's own Jeff Devlin, star of the DIY Network's “Stone House Revival.”
Discovering His Passion …
A Neshaminy High School graduate, Jeff started building things at a very young age. His favorite show was “This Old House,” and it was this classic renovation show that helped him recognize his own passion for carpentry. Jeff began as an apprentice for an historic home remodeler, where he honed his skills in designing, creating and building while gaining an appreciation for the craftsmanship, beauty and character of historic dwellings.
Later, Jeff's passion and ability to entertain those around him led him to television. He has appeared on numerous shows for HGTV and DIY Network including “I Hate My Bath”, “Good, Better, Best…”, “Spice Up My Kitchen”, “Ellen's Design Challenge”, “Most Embarrassing Rooms” and more. His show “Stone House Revival” restores historic homes around Bucks County.
In addition to making guest appearances at home shows, Jeff remains hand-on with his own company, SchoolHouse Woodworking, LLC, a retail store and custom woodworking company located inside the Exton Mall.
At the Philly Home Show …
On Saturday, January 11, Jeff Devlin will host a VIP Make-It, Take-It workshop at the 2020 Philly Home Show. During the workshop, attendees will receive encouragement that they can fix something in their home without hiring professionals.
In addition to the workshop, Jeff will also have a booth so people can walk up to ask questions or just say “hello” if they're fans.
After attending the Philly Home Show as a child, it's an honor for Jeff to return as a special guest.
