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 House, Bob Vila’s Home Again, Bob 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.
