Trivia

"Master Carpenter" Norm Abram is the longest serving crew member of This Old House, being with the show since the first season. He was originally hired by creator Russell Morash to do carpentry work on the project house but not to appear on TV, and Norm had dreamed of making a background cameo in a scene and being able to tell his friends that he had been on TV. Abram's role on the show has since expanded to that of a near co-host, and was given his own show, "The New Yankee Workshop" in 1989. See more »

I've watched this show for a long time, and it's still the best. Granted, Norm needs to wear something other than plaid, and Steve can be annoying, but it's fun to watch these guys inflict terror to homeowners in the form of lines like "We gotta replace all this" and "It's expensive, but it's worth it". Tops had to be when they were in London and asked everyone they met "Would you let me buy you a cup of tea?"
