"Dream Builders" on HGTV
Episode: "Bay Builders, Phoenix House"
• Aug. 26, 10:30 a.m. ET/PT
Building on the dock of the bay, a Maryland architect turns cottages into contemporary castles on the Chesapeake. A Colorado couple keeps their mountain oasis from heading downstream. A California house is reborn after fire consumes the original structure. And, an attic becomes a just-under-roof art studio retreat in Virginia.
"Rock Solid" on DIY
Episode: "Manufactured Stone Fireplace"
• Aug. 24, 10:00 p.m. ET/PT
• Aug. 25, 2:00 a.m. ET/PT
• Aug. 27, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT
• Aug. 28, 1:00 a.m. ET/PT
Building old fashioned fireplaces once required elaborate staging and costly material. Now, with modern building materials like manufactured stone, they're a relatively easy way to dress up a bland room. For this project, Derek and Dean travel to South Carolina to create a manufactured stone fireplace that has the look of real stone — without the cost.
"Assembly Required" on DIY
• Aug. 23, 10:30 p.m. ET/PT
• Aug. 24, 2:30 a.m. ET/PT
• Aug. 27, noon ET/PT
• Aug. 29, 5:30 p.m. ET/PT
Joel Egan and Robert Humble aren't your average architects, and they have a wild idea for their latest project. They want to turn two 40-foot shipping containers into a modern, eco-friendly home. The crew constructs the home out of two metal boxes and then tries to maneuver 80-feet of prefabricated steel down a muddy goat trail in the rainy state of Washington.
