Atlanta native Chip Wade comes from a line of experienced carpenters and woodcraftsmen. His interests in home renovation and carpentry began from an early age working closely with his father. This interest developed into a passion as he became proficient in both the design and execution of large-scale remodels.

Wade graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in mechanical engineering and became certified in residential construction while working as a structural engineer in a home building firm. In the fall of 2007, he joined HGTV’s Designed to Sell team as the carpenter on the Atlanta team. His expertise and craftsmanship help the show exceed all expectations of what can be accomplished in a three-day makeover. In his spare time, Wade plays guitar and manages Wade Built, LLC.
