Mika and Brian Kleinschmidt build new homes in 100 days on HGTV hit

While Brian and Mika Kleinschmidt run around the Tampa Bay area turning dirt lots into new houses for their clients on the second season of the HGTV hit “100 Day Dream Home,” they’re determined that viewers also are going to learn more about the people who hire them.

“The first season of any show, you’re trying to capture every single moment, but it’s hard to jam pack this whole process into 44 minutes,” said Mika Kleinschdmit, the real estate agent and designer who works closely with clients to pick everything from flooring and tile to countertops and fixtures in each episode of the series that returns at 8 p.m. Jan. 4.

“This year, we’re going to highlight more of the story of the family and still show the construction process,” she said. “For us, it’s about telling the story and the emotions that go into designing a home from scratch and for each family, why they chose a custom home.”
