What project are you working on now?
I have completed many home projects. Some of the smaller projects were replacing light fixtures and new floors in my two bathrooms. The larger projects included 150ft cobblestone wall and a new exposed aggregate driveway. Currently I also have a DIY blog.Not as popular as Bob Vila, but it does pretty well.

What's your favorite Bob Vila memory?
Watching Bob Vila was sort of a family thing.I remember back in my younger years, everybody would gather around the tube and watch This Old House with Bob Vila. No particular show comes to mind.My strongest memory is he was always working on some old huungus house up in Massachusetts.
