Get ready to feel all the nostalgia feels – Saturday marks the 25th anniversary of Home Improvement! While seeking out a solid filler to use at the base of the right side of the doorway, I discovered Bondo Home Solutions All-Purpose Putty. That’s right sports fans; the same people who brought you the great two-part body filler to bring your cherished rust bucket car back to life also make a similar two-part filler for applications around your home. In my case, I used it at the base of the door casing on either side of the door. On both sides of the door the wood had rotted away and had previously been patch with something that didn’t withstand the test of time. I’m hoping Bondo’s All-Purpose Putty will stand the test of time. However, I’m not just leaving it exposed to the elements. I added flashing at the base of the door casing that should bring rainwater away from the door threshold and out toward the rubber roof.
It has been mentioned on review sites about the lack of episode commentaries and bonus features on the DVDs (except unaired blooper reels). In an interview on , 68 Tim Allen stated that it was a done deal that the DVDs would not contain interviews or episode commentaries.

The L-shaped bookend is the best one to make, since it slides under the books and keeps them in place. Take two metal pieces that are 4-6 inches long and wide. Weld them together using two-tack welds. Use some paint to make it look colorful and interesting. They are even excellent ideas for gifts.
Al’s Mom was like this as well, although she only appeared in a few episodes. She was apparently so large actually seeing her wouldn’t do it justice and the only time we see her is an arm holding a loaf of French bread and we only hear her speak in mumbles and groans.
Screw the Money, I Have Rules! : Tim was asked to promote a new Binford demolition saw on the show, designed to be lightweight and appeal to women. Tim took the prototype home and found it to be lacking in both durability and performance and could not give it his endorsement. The marketing guy gave him the ultimatum of promoting the tool or being fired, which he got around by affirming on air the great quality of Binford tools and that the saw was not one of them, and topping it off invited the marketing guy to stand with him and answer questions about why they would make a substandard tool.
One of the biggest problems with doing any kind of home improvement project is the amount of money that it usually takes to do the job some reason, no matter how well someone does their planning, it can easily be expected to have the project go over budget by at least 10 percent, and often more.
