Trivia

The first project house was located in Dorchester, Massachusetts. The house was owned by the show's producers who had purchased it for a mere $18,000 and sold it once the project was complete. In 2004, when the show revisited the house as part of the 25th anniversary special, it was noted that the house was valued at over $500,000. See more »

Good show for carpenters.
29 October 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

As a show explaining how to build things and examining how houses were built, this show can't be beat. It's already been running for over 20 years, a sure sign of quality. This has got to be the original, seeing how many rip-offs it has inspired. This show has remained good entertainment since 1979.
