In "Restoring Charleston" licensed contractor Trent Fasnacht has a passion for renovating pig's ears, aka old homes in Charleston, S.C. ``I love it when people say `you cannot fix this house,' '' Trent says. ``It's a big challenge, but that's part of the excitement in a town known for its distinctive architecture style.'' The challenge stems from the condition at which Fasnacht first encounters the homes -- abandoned, condemned or burned out. He and his team demolish old additions and remove rotten materials to transform the centuries-old structures back into the beautiful homes they once were. Trent says he's no magician; just a home renovator who wholeheartedly loves every inch of restoring extremely neglected homes.
