The two former co-stars are hosting new game show ‘Assembly Required’ for the History Channel, and the project might be the closest fans get to a real-life edition of their fictional show within a show, ‘Tool Time’.

The pair are back together as hosts and executive producers alongside resident expert and DIY YouTuber April Wilkerson, as the show challenges builders across the US to “breathe new life into everyday household items in desperate need of fixing”.

Tim commented: ‘They say a longtime friend is someone who responds with, ‘This is by far your worst idea ever’…Fortunately, this was a great idea working with Richard.

“I loved those days doing Tool Time. We both share a great appreciation of people who can solve a problem not by talking about it, but by ‘doing’ it with creativity and amazing building skills. Plus it gives me more time to make fun of his fake beard.”

Detailing the show, the History Channel added: “This new series will push each contestant to their limits while testing their ability and ingenuity to not only rebuild it but to build

What The Stats Say – Opta demonstrates Leicester’s home improvement

Magpies not flying away

Everton 1.618/13 v Newcastle 7.06/1; The Draw 4.1
Saturday 30 January, 12:30
Live on BT Sport 1

“Newcastle have lost their last five Premier League away games, failing to score in any of the last four. They last lost six in a row in April 2016 (a run of 9), while they last lost five in a row without scoring in May 2015 – both runs included 0-3 defeats at Everton.”

Everton are a little short to back for a straight victory, so take a chance on them winning to nil at 2.56/4.

Palace score early goals

Crystal Palace 3.185/40 v Wolves 2.727/4; The Draw 3.211/5
Saturday 30 January, 15:00
Live on Sky Sports Main Event

“Only Tottenham have scored more goals in the opening 15 minutes of Premier League games than Crystal Palace this season, with a league-high 29% of the Eagles’ goals coming in this timeframe (7/24). Last season, Palace only scored once in the opening 15 minutes.”

With Wolves struggling to score goals right now, Palace could be value at 3.814/5 to be leading at half-time.

City defence is reliable

Solutions for a functional home entry

Search #mudroom on Instagram, and you’ll get more than 100,000 hits showing perfectly organized and styled spaces with cabinets, cubbies, and hooks to house everyone’s backpacks, coats, and shoes.

Those pictures are dreamy, but what if you don’t have the space for a dedicated mudroom, where all the clutter of everyday comings and goings can be neatly stowed out of sight? The entry spaces in apartments, rowhouses, and other smaller homes get a real workout — and often look the part.

We asked designer Shawna Underwood of Shawna Underwood Interior Design in D.C. for advice on how to tame your entryway clutter and which products she would suggest for storing shoes, coats, keys, and more.

Having designated places for everything is the key to avoiding a mess, Underwood said. “If you have a place to put your keys, your purse, your hat, and you train yourself to put things where they’re supposed to go, they can always stay kind of neat.”

Here are Underwood’s suggestions for a beautiful but functional home entry:

A dedicated coat closet is nice, but not everyone has the space for that, and even if you do, what are the odds that everyone’s coats make it

Home Improvement: Let’s plant trees

By Don Shor, Greg McPherson and Yael Franco
Special to The Enterprise

One of the simplest actions you can take to improve your neighborhood, increase your property values, lower your energy bills, and help sustain our urban forest is to plant a tree.

We all know trees are beneficial. They help to reduce the urban heat island effect by shading reflective surfaces. They moderate the local climate by blocking wind and providing shade. Direct cooling of buildings reduces energy use. They filter pollutants from the air, provide habitat for wildlife, sequester carbon, and are well known to have social, emotional, and cultural benefits.

Just how beneficial are trees?

Dr. Greg McPherson, retired Urban Forest Researcher with the USDA Forest Service, has done research to quantify some of the benefits of trees. For example, a mature shade tree in Davis can reduce annual air conditioning costs by $15-20. The same tree removes 10 pounds of air pollutants with annual health human benefits valued at $40-50.

By intercepting 700 gallons of rainfall, this tree reduces stormwater runoff and pollution, valued at $6. The same tree can sequester 200-300 pounds of carbon dioxide each year, helping to offset our emissions. It increases property

Head to Habitat Erie’s ReStore for help with home repairs, improvements

Maybe you’re a homeowner with a broken toilet and a budget that’s been hit hard by the pandemic. Or possibly you’re a landlord who needs to replace a door after your most recent tenants moved out.

What you might not realize is that many home repair and improvement needs can be met at Greater Erie Area Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore. 

Yes, Habitat is best known for constructing houses for families in need. And when the nonprofit receives donations of materials, they are first evaluated to see if they are a fit for a house that’s being built. But if they aren’t, they go to the ReStore, where they are offered for sale to the public two days a week. The proceeds are used to help build houses for Habitat families.

The store at 4922 Pittsburgh Ave., in Millcreek Township, is open Fridays, 9 a.m. to noon, and Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and features a variety of new and used materials that have been donated by contractors, homeowners and others.

“I go there Friday and Saturday every week,” Michael Vangeli, 59, of Erie, said.

  • Home-improvement shows have become massively popular in recent years.
  • But the shows only spotlight a handful of home decor styles.
  • As a result, people’s homes are starting to lack personality.

I love home-improvement shows because they’re the perfect formula for relaxation. Watching experts transform someone’s home can make the stress of any day fade away.

For years, I worshipped these shows, and I became a believer in the power of open-concept floor plans, barn doors, industrial sinks, and accent walls to transform a house into a home.

But recently, I’ve noticed these shows are becoming a bit too powerful.

People have started to see home-improvement as blueprints for how their spaces should look, creating millions of identical homes that have been drained of any personality.
