In 2007, Oosterhouse has his own home improvement shows, Carter Can and The Inside Job, a spin-off show to Carter Can.
The pinup carpenter also currently hosts HGTV's Red Hot and Green and Million Dollar Rooms.
TV home-improvement guru Carter Oosterhouse is out to create a new kind of Michigan winery—with a big assist from his wife, Amy Smart, and star chef Mario Batali.
(Batali helped with the tasting room menu, he's not an owner).
From a young age, Oosterhouse took an interest in carpentry.
“Mario is a damn good golfer—much better than I am,” Carter says.He married actress Amy Smart, and the two now have a home base in an upscale West L. “If you ever sat next to me on a plane, you’d know it’s the first thing I talk about,” he says. It’s summer, fresh farm food, sand dunes, the water of Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay.The values we associate with the Midwest—friendship, loyalty, morals—Traverse City has in spades.She has since appeared in numerous films, including Varsity Blues (1999), Road Trip (2000), Rat Race (2001), The Butterfly Effect (2004), Just Friends (2005), Mirrors (2008), and Tyler Perry's The Single Moms Club (2014).Smart has also guest-starred on television show Felicity (1999–2001) and starred on Smith (2006).
Even after I left, I always found a way to go back.” In fact, about a decade ago, Oosterhouse bought and began renovating a home in the area, a romantic, waterfront Victorian on 13 acres. The dream of building and opening a Michigan winery was more recent.
