NASHVILLE. Julie Couch will focus on Nashville’s historic homes when she teams up with Troy Dean Shafer for the DIY Network Premiere of ‘Nashville Flipped.’
The premiere of ‘Nashville Flipped’ with Julie Couch airs on the DIY Network April 12, 2017 at 2 p.m. ET
“Reviving historic homes is as important to Troy as is accomplishing a financially sound flip,” states Nashville Flipped. “As with many of the old homes he acquires there are always unforeseen challenges, because one never really knows what one has until they begin pulling back the years of neglect.”
Julie Couch will work with Troy this season to help tackle each unique Nashville property.

On East Nashville:
“With its parks and other historic city features coupled with a progressive and bohemian local vibe (think Austin and its unofficial motto “Keep Austin Weird”), this fascinating area has attracted a mix of urban pioneers, indie musicians, artists and other creative types bringing a revival of sorts to what was once a somewhat distressed part of the city. In addition to parks and other distinctive features, architecturally East Nashville boasts a mix of Queen Anne Victorians, vintage foursquares, bungalows, craftsman style and midcentury homes. And like other smart cities, Nashville has begun to wake up to the elevated notion of preserving and restoring in lieu of simply tearing down what’s old and building from scratch.”
