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: "Canal Brick Courtyard"
• June 10, 9:30 p.m. ET/PT
• June 11, 1:30 a.m. ET/PT
• June 14, 11:30 a.m. ET/PT
Expert stone masons and hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns add a tumbled brick courtyard to the top tier of an interlocking wall and steps. Then they bump it up a notch by installing a border made from the same material as the wall. It's an easy, colorful way to bring a sense of design and purpose to a yard that was once sloping and under-utilized.
"I Want That" on Fine Living
Episode: "Jeweled Glass Sink, Photo Tile Murals, Disposable Camcorder, Pearl Veneer"
• June 12, 10:00 a.m. ET/PT
Dress up the bathroom with a 29-carat diamond-encrusted sink. New tiles can be imprinted with photos or artwork for custom murals. A one-time-use camcorder holds up to 20 minutes of video. Luxurious tiles feature real mother-of-pearl coatings. Plus, listen to favorite tunes while doing the backstroke with a waterproof MP3 player.
