I finally watched the H&H episode on converting a garage to livable space. Honestly, it was a waste of time - if I had a garage, I'd have to park my car in it. Given that my house is on a lot that's only 19 feet wide, there's no driveway. The show was just totally over the top. I still don't find Lynda a very compelling host - she's very stiff on the air. But in general, I do like the new format better than the old one.
One show I do like is Home to Stay with Peter Fallico. Not always my style, but the results are usually pretty good. I loved seeing his home. It was also featured in Style at Home last month. Out of the new shows, I have to say this is one of my favourites.
