Tamara Day is the host of Bargain Mansions, airing on HGTV and DIY networks. A native of greater Kansas City, Missouri, this mother of four specializes in large, neglected houses that would intimidate most. Tamara learned the construction trade growing up on her family’s Kansas farm where she helped her father maintain and repair the property’s buildings. Years later, she made a career out of transforming dilapidated properties into gorgeous dream homes. In the series, Tamara showcases a passion for creative restoration, vibrant design and functional beauty as she brings old mansions in Kansas City back to life for families to enjoy for years to come.
