Your quotes are spot on, and reminded that one of the fellows was tearing out a sink to replace it. He told his girlfriend he was having trouble cutting the "sink wires"...referring to the water supplies. There was some scrpit that appeared on the screen with an arrow pointing to the water supplies and the words "sink wires are often called pipes"

What always gets me is that first they throw a hammer through the window.   They all must like working in broken glass.   Roly

Instead of using the miter saw she free handed it through a benchtop table saw. (Seriously, someone will get hurt sooner or later)

Years ago I watched them, for the same reason Fred gave,waiting for my wife in the doctors office, or sitting waiting in the barber shop.

I remember one where they were wall papering a brick wall, another where they wanted to put a ceiling light in the kids bedroom. The outlets were switched for lamps. so they cut a 1' wider slot in the drywall up to the ceiling from the wall switch box in the wall cavity, notched the top plates, over to the center of the ceiling, cut in a box, pulled in a wire. Then wall papered the wall and ceiling to cover the slot.

the sledge hammer and sawzall/chainsaw is a requirement. When they get through they are waste deep in debris and live electrical wiring.

My wife is a great fan of the "Fixer upper" and "Property Brothers" on HGTV.  Maybe it's wishful thinking on her part. :D  You don't see much of the actual work being done, except for some foolishness in the early demolition process with the homeowners taking part in the demo. You basically see the problems encountered, and the progress of the renovation. Not much of the actual work being done except highlights. Somehow almost always managing to stay on budget.

When I read that, I had to look at the date you posted that.  I was sure it was an April Fools joke.

I noticed one show that shows a couple of gal's heading to a home with a couple of chainsaws. That should be interesting.:wacko:No I haven't watched it.

I think that one is called "Good Bones" (?). I haven't seen it either, just the ads for it.

That must have been like the joke of the guy who returned the chainsaw to the store,and told the clerk that it was too hard of work to cut with it. The clerk took the saw to check it out and gave it a pull, it starts up. The customer jumps and says "what is that noise"?
