NAHB-Produced Programs on HGTV & DIY This Week
The NAHB Production Group produces three weekly television shows on HGTV and DIY for consumers. The following is the latest lineup:
"I Want That" on HGTV
Episode: "Television Mirror"
• Nov. 3, 11:30 p.m. ET/PT
• Nov. 4, 3:30 a.m. ET/PT
• Nov. 5, 2:00 p.m. ET/PT
Decorate your home with something totally out of the box — an elegant and discreet television screen that’s hidden behind an extraordinary mirror. A tool attachment makes shoveling snow and raking the yard easy on your back, thanks to its patented ergonomic design. Plus, a modern play shed, a revolutionary stroller, a self-stirring cup and more.
"Rock Solid" on DIY
Episode: "Granite Fireplace Revamp"
• Nov. 2, 5:00 p.m. ET/PT
• Nov. 4, 11:30 a.m. ET/PT
Home owner Frank Marinelli made a common mistake when building his Newport home 20 years ago. He saved money by covering the fireplace surrounds in his living and dining room with brick and inexpensive tile. That brick is now painted white and fading, the tile is chipped and the fireplaces are more than ready for a facelift. Frank calls on his old buddies, masons Dean and Derek, to revamp his two fireplace surrounds using polished granite and boulder veneer. Dean and Derek will take us inside the stone fabricator's shop; discuss what to look for in a good manufacturer and how to choose stone; and demonstrate how to revamp a fireplace surround.
"Assembly Required" on DIY
Episode: "Geodesic Dome Home"
• Nov. 1, 10:30 p.m. ET/PT
• Nov. 2, 2:30 a.m. ET/PT
• Nov. 5, noon ET/PT
• Nov. 7, 5:30 p.m. ET/PT
One couple decides to build a geodesic dome home and enlists their family and friends to help put it together. The unique design is delivered as a precut and panelized kit that goes up with the guidance of a dome-raising expert. The dome structure also allows the family to make interior customizations to accommodate their personal lifestyle.
