NAHB-Produced Programs on the DIY Network
The NAHB Production Group produces weekly television shows for consumers on the DIY network. The following is the latest lineup:
"Rock Solid" on DIY
Episode: "Porphyry Granite Front Walkway"
• Sept. 11, 5:00 p.m. EDT
Stone masons and hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns install porphyry — the most popular paver in Europe and prized for its beauty and durability — in a Florida walkway. However, setting it in a cobble style can be difficult and time-consuming. Not now. Dean and Derek use pre-cut stones set in a fan pattern on a rubber backing. With this recently introduced product, they take a provincial concrete walkway and transform it into an ageless elegant porphyry walkway.
"Indoors Out" on DIY
Episode: "Outdoor Cigar Room"
• Sept. 10, 5:30 p.m. EDT
Buddy LaPointe enjoys smoking cigars but his wife Sue doesn't allow him to enjoy them inside, so hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns give Buddy a smoking lounge outside his patio doors. They create a two-layered deck with one area for eating and another for lounging. They also make the yard’s boring chimney a focal point with a salvaged chestnut beam for a mangle and an antique weather-proofed cabinet for cigars. From colors to furniture to stogies, this episode has everything needed to create a one-of-a-kind outdoor cigar room.
