Are You Watching This New House?0

This Old House sounds dusty. This New House is fresh and vibrant. Maybe it’s a sign of the times — or just a TV spin-off.

Last week, the DIY Network debuted This New House. According to DIY, the show will air every Thursday at 8:00 p.m. (EST) on the cable channel.

The idea behind the program is to showcase some out-of-the-ordinary items, from building materials to techniques to must-have home gadgets. In other words, expect to see a lot very cool items that you don’t have (or can’t afford) at home.

A perfect example of what’s to come could be found in the first episode, which featured Blu Homes, Inc., a green builder out of Massachusetts. According to the builder, the house is what’s known as a Blu|Element, which is small and very eco-friendly. Designed as a single residence or vacation cottage, these homes typically come in three sizes, with one, two or three bedrooms. Options include a fireplace and various configurations for windows, doors and walls. Two of the standards in this open floor plan include bamboo floors and a towel warmer.

Not everything old is new again; This New House features the This Old House host Kevin O’Connor. He shares the grunt work with co-host Amy Matthews. Check out the clips below –  and tune in tonight at 8:00 EST.
