Los Angeles-based musicians Wes Borland and his fiancée, Carré Callaway, moved into their Arden Park home Thursday, and in true rock star fashion, a camera crew followed them.

The pair and their adventure renovating a historic Detroit mansion in the Arden Park-East Boston Historic District will be filmed for a show on the DIY Network that’s slated to premiere next year. Other details are under wraps for now.

Borland, who is best known as a member of rap metal band Limp Bizkit, posted a photo of the exterior home on Instagram announcing he and Callaway closed on the house two weeks ago.

“I think it’s phenomenal that artists on the national scene are joining the longtime creative synergy that the Detroit music community has,” Boston Edison resident and musician Michelle May says. “We are well known for having premier musicians from a variety of genres, so Wes Borland will fit right in.”

Their Indiana limestone mansion isn’t the only Detroit dwelling getting a high-profile makeover. Last week it was revealed “Rehab Addict” Nicole Curtis teamed up with Quicken Loans to renovate the Ransom Gillis house in Brush Park.

In addition to playing in Limp Bizkit, Borland, 40, plays in Callaway’s band Queen Kwong, an intense indie rock group, who has an impressive resume herself. She was discovered by Trent Reznor at 17 and toured with Nine Inch Nails. Queen Kwong played a Hamtramck bar earlier in July. Callaway’s debut album, “Get A Witness,” will come out late next month with a tour of Europe to follow.
