Syndicated home improvement show "THE MONEY PIT" aired a special two-hour show with the crew from TV's "THIS OLD HOUSE" to celebrate the completion of the PBS show's first-ever project in NEW YORK CITY, a 1904 BROOKLYN Brownstone. The show aired MARCH 14th and 15th and online at www.moneypit.com and www.thisoldhouse.com as well as through the MONEY PIT podcast.
"THIS OLD HOUSE was truly the first home improvement reality television program," said THE MONEY PIT co-host TOM KRAEUTLER. "They have been entertaining and educating millions of home enthusiasts for three decades and we knew our audience would have strong interest in the show and their accomplishments with this project. Both THIS OLD HOUSE and THE MONEY PIT appeal to motivated people with a passion for making good homes better."
THIS OLD HOUSE host KEVIN O'CONNOR said that the show "tells the story of one family converting a former rooming house into a three-family home to afford to stay close to the diverse cultures and resources the city has to offer." O'CONNOR appears on the special along with master carpenter NORM ABRAM, landscape contractor ROGER COOK, general contractor TOM SILVA, and design correspondent CAROLE FREEHAUF.
"The project is beautiful and the creativity of the production team impressive," said KRAEUTLER's co-host LESLIE SEGRETE.
