Lots of Love, Barbara Iris Alsieux!

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.
