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: "Multiple Brick Platforms"
Anyone who has tried to put steps on a steep hillside knows that you need platforms in between those steps. Expert stone masons and hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns show how this is done when they upgrade preexisting hillside granite steps by creating brand new platforms with canal street brick. First, they demo the existing dirt platforms — which is what most people have — and pour concrete footings. Over the footings — and as an artistic contrast to the granite — they set colorful canal street brick in a running bond pattern. As a finishing touch, they install outdoor lighting that transforms and illuminates a ramshackle step system into an elegant hillside walkway.
"Indoors Out" on DIY
Episode: "Outdoor Teen Room"
With triplet teenagers — and a house designed for adult tastes — Steve and Sue Campbell desperately needed a casual outdoor room where their kids could have fun. So hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns transform the Campbells' backyard gravel pit into the perfect outdoor room for the triplets. They add a curving stone patio up against the house, put in a fire pit for marshmallow roasting and add a putting green for entertainment. With lots of curving planting beds, plenty of grass and cool seating, the teenagers have plenty of outdoor space just right for them to enjoy with friends.
