Former ‘Home Improvement’ Star Taran Noah Smith Fixing Homes of Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey
He has spent the last two months living in a camp as he fixes the homes.
Former child star Taran Noah Smith, who became a widely recognizable face after appearing on 90s sitcom Home Improvement for eight seasons, is now lending a hand to improve the lives of those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Smith, who portrayed Mark, the youngest son of Tim Allen's bumbling handyman Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor, is now donning a tool belt of his own while helping others.
“It is very strange; I'm now doing tool time for real,” he told Inside Edition about his charitable actions, which include driving a forklift and handling a power drill.
He lives at a camp outside Corpus Christi, Texas, where he volunteers with Burners Without Borders to repair and clear buildings devastated by Hurricane Harvey.
He's been seen hauling away thousands of pounds of debris from a damaged Moose Lodge, disposing of damaged mattresses and even demolishing a condemned home.
The former child star has been living in an orange truck at the camp ground for two months.
He also gave Inside Edition a tour of the workshop area, which contains all of the wood that was reclaimed from demolished homes.
“We have a nice outdoor shower which was great during the summer, but now it's getting a little cold,” he added.
