Our new motto: "old houses, old people, and old dogs"!!!
30 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is EVERYTHING that a housing-rehab show should be about: saving wonderful old homes from the wrecking ball & bringing them back to life. It's very relevant during these times of urban renewal and the vital re- use of older materials. The rehab of old homes is a 'movement' that should never end.

And what's not to love here??? Nicole Curtis {honestly} shows us the pains & hassles of old home rehab as she goes thru the process. And then, along with her, we get to experience the gratification of bringing a classic back to it's former glory, becoming livable again, and ending up even more being even wonderful than before. For those of us who LOVE (like Nicole wears a shirt that says this): "old houses, old people, and old dogs" . . . It's a wonderful, enjoyable show!

And THANK YOU Nicole for not muddling up this series with quasi-political issues (such as gay rights) so constantly "featured" on many other shows. As important as equality and personal rights are, craft and cooking shows (on HGTV and the Food Network) are just NOT the place for it - it's become SO boring to see that repeatedly forced upon the viewers.

As for Nicole Curtis, we love her fierce independent spirit and amazing work ethic. She is the real deal - and a total doll!
