We all agree. Everybody loves Fixer Upper on HGTV.
And doesn’t it seem that they air old episodes nearly 24 hours a day?
I kid — but come on — let’s just admit it.
We have a semi-serious couple crush on these two:
Meanwhile, here’s another question:
Did you know that This Old House is still on PBS?
Yes it is! And I love it just as much as I love Fixer Upper!
People. Here’s why:
Yes, that’s a farmhouse, + yes, there’s a barn-like garage attached to it.
That looks just like a renovated vintage home,
as is usually the case with a This Old House project.
However, this season’s project is not their usual renovation;
it’s a new-build from a Vermont company, Connor Homes!

The entire house is built in sections, indoors, inside their factory,
+ delivered to the building site on huge trucks!
Feast your eyes on this epic cupola, nearly finished:
Here it is, being lowered into place on the barn/garage:
Nope. That doesn’t look like the prefab houses we have in the Midwest!
Conner Homes specializes in historical-style homes.
Here’s another look-see at the This Old House project:
Please. Transom windows above the garage doors? Epic!
White houses with red barn-like garages are “thing” in New England.
Here are a few examples of both old + new:
Raise your hand if you love standing seam metal roofs as much as I do!
Here’s another new-build house + barn project
by Yankee Barn Homes:
And inside, you can see the house’s post-and-beam construction:
WOW, am I right?

How about board + batten siding? Love it!
So. Now you’re asking,
“Kay, on what day of the week is This Old House aired?”
I think that varies from 1 PBS station to another.
Here in Chicago, it’s on Tuesday nights on the Lakeshore PBS channel.
May I also recommend the This Old House magazine?
I subscribe because it’s only $1 per issue when you do,
+it’s a really, really good magazine.
And don’t you love it when a magazine lands in your mailbox?
