NAHB-Produced Programs on DIY, Fine Living and HGTV

The NAHB Production Group produces weekly television shows on DIY, Fine Living and HGTV for consumers. The following is the latest lineup:

"Rock Solid" on DIY

Episode: "Eco Masons: Dean and Derek Go Green"

• May 28, 6:30 p.m. ET/PT


Using the latest in green products — and working in California — expert stone masons and hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns combine hardscape and softscape to create an environmentally friendly driveway, walkway and garden area. Permeable pavers, a water-saving irrigation system, organic plants, a weather station and low voltage lights are some of the features Dean and Derek use to transform this Bay Area home into an oasis of sustainability. It's the softer, greener side of the rough and tumble stone masons.

"I Want That" on Fine Living

Episode: "Wind Power, Adjustable Sofas, DIY Tools"

• May 29, 10:00 a.m. ET/PT
• May 31, 2:30 p.m. ET/PT


A residential wind generator may help ease the pain of high energy bills. Getting comfortable on the couch just got easier with a sofa that can adjust to every move. Plus, a quick car check-up and handy tools for the do-it-yourselfer.
