Canfield, OH: America’s leading home design and renovation brand — This Old House — recently announced its 2019 partnership with Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods, based in Canfield, OH, for the 2019 Idea House. The home, located in the coveted historic district of downtown New Canaan, Connecticut, will be featured prominently in This Old Housemagazine and on thisoldhouse.com.
The 2019 partnership is the second year in a row that Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods will work with the This Old House brand. In 2018, the local, family-owned company provided all of the interior doors, trim and hardwood flooring for two other TOH projects: the 2018 Idea House and the Jamestown Net-Zero Project House.
“Our philosophy has always been to go big or go home,” says second-generation owner Terry Baird. “Partnering with This Old House in 2018 put us on a stage like we’d never been on before. The experience was flawless and now our entire team is excited about the 2019 partnership.”
As the name suggests, the purpose of This Old House’s Idea House is to give fans ideas and insight from a concept home that incorporates innovative building materials and inspiring design ideas. The 2019 project is the brand’s 5th annual Idea House and is an almost built-from-the-ground-up Greek Revival home (TOH is restoring the original 1840’s façade and building a thoroughly modern home behind it)with over 6000-square-feet of cutting-edge materials and techniques.
“We are chomping at the bit to get going on the 2019 Idea House,” said Steve Stack, sales director at Baird Brothers. “Everything This Old House does is top-notch, the kind of quality their brand has always portrayed, and it’s fun to watch our products show themselves off when craftsman at that level put them to use.”
