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: "StressEraser, Etch-It Cups"
• Nov. 10, 11:30 p.m. ET/PT

Calm your mind and relax your body with a portable finger sensor monitor that tracks your stress levels and teaches you how to reduce them. Never lose track of your cup at a big party again! Etch-it Cups allow you to scratch your name onto them. Chill your luke-warm bottled beverages in a cool minute with the CooperCooler.

"Rock Solid" on DIY
Episode: "Quarry Survival Tips"
• Nov. 9, 5:00 p.m. ET/PT
• Nov. 11, 11:30 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
Episode: "Timber Frame Home"
• Nov. 8, 10:30 p.m. ET/PT
• Nov. 9, 2:30 a.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.
