One of my favorite architectural features on a house is the porch! There is no better place to get together with friends in the warm  summer evenings. http://goo.gl/AQwTo6

The summer may be winding down, but that doesn't mean there isn't still fun to be had! If you're working in the backyard this weekend, check out our favorite treehouses and  you may just be inspired! http://goo.gl/sJ1fsO

Introduction
I’ve spent my career helping people upgrade their homes and improve their lives.
 
You probably know me from TV, where for nearly 30 years I hosted a variety of shows – This Old HouseBob Vila’s Home AgainBob Vila, and Restore America with Bob Vila. Oh, and let’s not forget Tim Allen’s sitcom, Home Improvement.
 
Before my life in broadcasting, I launched my own residential remodeling and design business.  I served as a Peace Corps volunteer, building houses and communities in Panama. I learned first-hand about home building from my father, who hand built our family home.  It’s fair to say that buildings, especially homes, are my life’s work.
