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.
