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: "Functionless Front Entry Fix-Up"
• June 3, 9:30 p.m. ET/PT
• June 4, 1:30 a.m. ET/PT
• June 7, 11:30 a.m. ET/PT
It's a common problem: a front entrance that doesn't serve as a front entrance. Expert stone masons and hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns start with a house that has a fence barrier, no front walkway and unattractive old concrete steps. Can you say no personality? By installing Millstone pavers, busting open the fence and veneering the front steps with real stone, they give this functionless front entrance a true fix-up and lots of presence.
"I Want That" on Fine Living
Episode: "Videophone, Automatic Faucets, Body Composition Scale, Garden Walkaway Forms"
• June 5, 10:00 a.m. ET/PT
• June 7, 2:30 p.m. ET/PT
A new phone can send full-motion video. An adapter for kitchen and bathroom faucets enables hands-free automatic operation. The latest in bathroom scales gives details on body fat, bone mass and more. Reusable plastic molds make it easy to pour decorative concrete walkways.
