On the premiere episode of HGTV’s Home Again With The Fords, Leanne and Steve Ford have a problematic demo that turns out to have an amazing discovery. They come across an unusual find in the house they are working on, just by chance.
TV Shows Ace exclusive clip reveals that sometimes when you are knee deep in a demo, the opportunity for lucky finds from decades previous can add a lot of interest to the new renovations for the house. You might even be able to incorporate the vintage find into the redesign.
In Leanne and Steve Ford’s case, it is the discovery of old newspapers used to insulate and pad the floors under 1950’s wall-to-wall carpeting that becomes their eureka moment.
Thinking out loud, Leanne wonders if they can decoupage the interesting “time capsule” of old print to a piece of furniture, flooring or a wall.
About the new episode of Home Again With The Fords
Pittsburgh is where the show is based as the Ford siblings take on new renovations.
Kristi, Sam and their three boys moved from Denver to Carnegie, a small township on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, to take over an inherited old farmhouse that’s been in the family for generations, complete with a mini-golf course and ice cream stand on the property.
Now, Kristi’s parents are coming back and moving into the old farmhouse to live out their retirement years.
Before they arrive, Kristi and Sam enlist sibling duo Steve and Leanne Ford to update the home with fun and fresh touches while keeping the rich family history intact.
The wow factor is always worth the wait as the duo take us from demo say to reveal moments that make people cry.
