If anything could make housework fun, it might be a hovering vacuum cleaner. Check out a vacuum that floats on a pocket of air and find out why this makes for a better floor cleaner. Tired of running a hot bath only to have the water cool before you make it to the tub? A new heated bathtub keeps a hot bath hot. Plus, a new kind of stud finder instantly pinpoints the center of a stud and makes hanging heavy objects safer. And a modern, minimalist high chair could have your baby sitting pretty.

Derek and Dean take advantage of the slate expertise of expert Tom Nigro, of Capitol Tile and Marble, to create a one-of-a-kind slate floor in a Washington, D.C. metropolitan area home. They give insider tips on varying color schemes and tile size to create a finished project that uses this old-fashioned project in a distinctly modern way.

Then, Marian and Betsy are joined by friends to build their yurt in only a week's time. There is also a tour of the finished yurt home to find out how it all came together.
