April 2013 | Custom Home Building
When the DIY Network decided to contact home builders in search of new model homes in the DC metro area to film in, they turned to Classic Homes. After a day of shooting at our Windsor Model in Potomac, MD, the producers were so impressed, they requested a second day of filming. With its granite circular staircase, gourmet kitchen, numerous sitting areas, and two-story foyer, living and family rooms, this custom home provided an almost endless selection of impressive backgrounds. The DIY Network even sent two film crews to make the most out of their second day of filming at our Montgomery County home.
The DIY Network is a national cable channel owned by Scripps Networks Interactive, parent company of HGTV, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel and Great American Country.
