oldhouse1.jpgI was surfing through the 10 or so channels I still have with my disabled cable last night and fell upon ‘This Old House as the only show I was truly interested in watching. I’m definitely not alone, as the series remains the longest running home improvement show on television and continues to teach as well as it entertains. This coming February, the theme is green, as the experts head down to Austin, Texas to renovate a home in an eco-friendly style from start to finish. From the release,

“The This Old House experts have joined forces with homeowners Michele Grieshaber and Michael Klug, who plan to renovate modestly for the benefit of their budget, and the environment. This includes expanding their tiny bungalow to accommodate their growing family by installing metal roofing, spray foam insulation, salvaged materials, low flow fixtures and toilets, energy efficient appliances, and a solar array that will likely erase two months of energy bill per year.”

While the series will be entertaining to watch, This Old House also allowed the owners of the home to blog about their experiences during filming. From salvaging old materials for new additions, to recycling, to LED lighting, to steel roofs, to rainwater collection and efficient appliances, owners Michael and Michele dish about the experience.

We’ll be getting an advanced viewing of the series shortly and will update you on our thoughts. Till then, be sure to check out the website and program your recorders for the series premiere on PBS beginning Thursday, February 8, 2007. (Be sure to check local listings for exact times and channel information)
