The NAHB Production Group produces four weekly television shows on HGTV and DIY for consumers. The following is this week's lineup:
"I Want That" on HGTV
Episode: "Glass Kitchens, Fun Bathroom Sinks"

• May 4, 1:00 a.m. ET/PT
• May 7, 2:00 p.m. ET/PT
See how glass is used in the kitchen to stunning effect in countertops, appliances and range hoods. A new garden shed is so nice, some people use it for a home office. Fun bathroom sinks have kids lining up to wash up. Dine in style on a colorful translucent table or a table with a fire pit in the center.
"Dream Builders" on HGTV
Episode: "Chicago Glass House, Montana Silo"
An architect builds a glass house framed in steel and aluminum. A city dweller heads to Montana to live in a converted silo in the Absaroka Mountains. Adjoining decrepit beach houses get updated as one spectacular pavilion. An 18th century historic home in Virginia is now open to the public. Looking for something different for her kitchen backsplash, a woman settles on sanded aluminum.
"Rock Solid" on DIY
Episode: "Quarry Survival Tips"
• May 4, 10:00 p.m. ET/PT
• May 5, 1:00 a.m. ET/PT

Derek and Dean share insider tips and practical advice on not only how to survive a trip to the quarry, but how to make it a successful and fruitful adventure. Exploring the vast corners of a quarry, they take viewers inside the yard areas regular visitors would never see — like cutting and polishing shops. They also give tips on quarry layout, examine new products on the market, visit showroom displays, sample bins and talk the "quarry talk."
"Assembly Required" on DIY

• May 4, 1:30 a.m. ET/PT
• May 7, 2:00 p.m. ET/PT
The centuries-old craft of timber framing goes prefab when a Michigan couple decides to build their dream home. A tour of the factory shows how all the pieces are cut and assembled, and why these new homes are so energy-efficient. A crew in Virginia uses new and traditional technology to raise a timber frame house.
