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: "Kitchen Concrete Floor"
• March 17, 9:30 p.m. ET
• March 17, 11:30 p.m. ET
Expert stone masons and hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns, along with experts Jason Thoelke and Brandon Hobbes, of Creative Concrete Solutions, install an acid-etched concrete floor in a kitchen. In the process, they learn that the road to concrete can be messy and multi-layered, especially if the demo of the existing floor is difficult. Through the process, they demonstrate how to properly prepare a sub floor for a concrete overlay, how to mix the ingredients for each level of finish, how to find the right tools to achieve the desired texture and how to stain the floor safely and with even color.
"I Want That" on Fine Living
Episode: "Portable GPS Navigation, Copper Kitchens, Stylish Pet Carriers"
Never get lost again with a portable multimedia device that also includes a GPS navigation system. Enhance your kitchen with a copper sink and countertop. Make refrigerator cleaning easier with a liner infused with baking soda. Transport your pet in style with a hip, designer alternative to the traditional carrier.
