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: "Limestone Tile Entryway"
• Dec. 5, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT
• Dec. 6, 1:00 a.m. ET/PT
• Dec. 8, 11:30 a.m. ET/PT
Hosts Dean Marcisco and Derek Stearns cut their Florida vacation short to give Derek's mother a limestone tile entryway. In this project, they remove the existing ceramic floor, pick out natural stone tile and go through all the steps needed to install it — including setting, grouting and cleanup.
"Assembly Required" on DIY
Episode: "Deltec Round Kit Home — Roof and Wrap"
• Dec. 3, 10:30 p.m. ET/PT
• Dec. 4, 2:30 a.m. ET/PT
Catch up with a Virginia build crew as they raise a round roof and wrap up the build. Also, find out how one North Carolina family made out custom-designing and general contracting their own Deltec home. Even when it's prefab, "doing-it-yourself" can be tougher than expected.
"I Want That" on Fine Living
Episode: "Mosquito Trap, Handy Tools, Stimulating Soap"
• Dec. 6, 6:30 p.m. ET/PT
An advanced mosquito trap keeps up to an acre of area clear of the bloodsucking pests. New tools include a laser measuring device, painting system and a magnetic wristband to keep small tools close at hand. A caffeine-laced soap makes the morning shower more exhilarating. Plus, see a new soda keeper, hot dog griller and plant water monitor.
