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: "Recyled Paper Countertops"
• Sept. 23, 5:00 p.m. EDT
A kitchen in Northern Virginia with outdated laminate countertops is in need of some spice. Expert stone masons and hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns are up to the challenge and replace the existing countertops with PaperStone, a product made from recycled paper that is environmentally friendly and ultra stylish. Once Dean and Derek get into the recycling mode, it's hard to stop them. They add a recycled glass tile backsplash to take this kitchen from bland to bon appétit.
"Indoors Out" on DIY
Episode: "Wine Lovers Tasting Room"
• Sept. 24, 5:30 p.m. EDT
Nick and Sara love to have their large family over for company, but hate to entertain in their small dining and living area. They've got plenty of space outside, but would like to keep their yard mostly green. DIY hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns create a perfect solution by turning unused outdoor space that is filled with pool filters into a gorgeous wine lovers' tasting room. They put in a small retaining wall, add brick-hued pavers, build a custom bar with wine-loving accents and cover the entire area with a triangular pergola.
