  • This show was the founding father of DIY.

    I have watched This Old House since the first episode. Norm was young and thinner with no beard. Bob Vila was right out of the 70's with his thick black beard and bushy hair. They came into your home every week and showed you how to do those home repairs with great video close ups and explanations. Bob Vila was the front man but the heart and soul of the show was Norm Abram. This guy is a carpentry genius. I met him several times and he is down to earth just as he is on TOH. I have learned many tips and technics that I applied not only to my job but to my own home.
