The star of NTV’s Rock Solid Builds talks living the dream with the best team around

“I wouldn’t change anything for the world,” Randy Spracklin shared during our chat at his Newfound Builders office in Brigus.  

Speaking of their popular series, Rock Solid Builds, he had nothing but positive things to say about the entire experience. 

“I hope it just keeps on going. We’ve had such good fun. And like I say to everyone, the team behind the scenes and our team that you see on the show, I can’t say enough positive things about any of them. I’m often left speechless because I’m just having so much fun doing what I love,” he said.

As for some of the footage the cameras catch? He laughs. “They’re there with us almost every day filming, that’s why it’s so, so real. You never know what they are going to catch on film because you never know from one moment to the next what will happen with the crew and with the jobs,” he said.

It’s almost like a documentary, he added. “It’s real life because they’re just chasing us with cameras. At any given minute, you could find something hidden in a wall or uncover a problem no one knew about until we actually start taking things apart.” As for the fun everyone has?  That’s real too. 

“The tricks that we play on each other are never planned. It’s just like spur of the moment, like, ‘Hey, look, let’s throw that at Nikki to do.’ So the crew kind of has to be on their toes and so does the camera crew follow us everywhere we go. They capture it all, and that’s the way we like it because that’s us. That’s who we are.”

Rock Solid Builds is back on HGTV Canada for season two and season one of the popular series can now be seen on Saturdays at 2:30 P.M. on NTV

    Thoroughly enjoy the Rock Solid Builds show. The cast and their down to earth approach to building/restoring homes here in NL are entertaining as well as a wonderful advertisement for our province. The entire crew demonstrate the importance of having a strong work ethic, trusting in your team but also finding time to share laughter during the workday. Their camaraderie, family get togethers and charitable community works showcase the true spirit of Newfoundlanders. Cannot say enough good things about the show. Hope they are renewed for many more seasons!!!

    This show makes me want to visit the rock. I was raised in a small town in Ontario but now live in Ottawa, so this show brings me back to that small-town feeling. I never miss a show, and I routinely watch the shows over again. Thanks for sharing the spirit of friendship with the whole country.

    Living far from home (Newfoundland), it’s so nice to see a show all about “ Home”! The time they put into each home; the details, the cultural aspect, the love and the care and the fun they have with each other , they’re like one BIG happy family! Watching this show makes me want to move back “ Home”!

    I love Rock solid builds first time in 20 years I went back to my roots last summer in 2021 to go across the island to visit all my relatives, when I went to see my aunt and uncle at roaches line we went into Brigus on Saturday and my aunt knows how much we love the show and watch every week she said come on we will drive up and show you where his shop and house is That day Randy was in his garage would of loved to met him coming all the way from Ontario but out of respect didn’t want to bother him my uncle told me that his sister lives on same street I thought that was so nice, so we drove around brigus to show us around and my uncle said the yellow house with all the scalloping around was the house they were working on was pretty cool because we knew we would see in season 2 which we see love the crew so down to earth makes me laugh every week watching them best HGTV show ever these Newfoundlandounders are the best people you could ever meet I so love my heritage and very proud of my back ground
