In February on Fine Living a new season of Giada at Home will start, along with new show, Rustic Renovation, and continue with double episodes of Million Dollar Contractor and We Bought the Farm.


In February on Fine Living (StarSat 281 / Cell C black 251) a new season of Giada at Home will start, and the channel will continue with double episodes of Million Dollar Contractor and We Bought the Farm, and a new show Rustic Renovation will look at cabin renovations.


■ A brand-new season of Giada at Home starts on Fine Living on Sunday 11 February at 22:00 with double episodes featuring home-cooked Italian recipes with a Californian twist, prepared by Fine Living’s favourite chef Giada Di Laurentiis.


■ Rustic Renovation starts on Wednesday 14 February at 22:00 with double episodes.

The brothers Chase and Brock Jurgensen have built a construction company based in Minnesota, where just about everyone has a cabin, whether on the water or deep in the woods – and the brothers are on hand to renovate and modernise those that have been badly built or neglected.

With Chase’s expertise as a contractor and Brock’s skill in woodwork, together they creatively
transform worn-out, broken-down spaces into beautiful, functional homes.

This season, Chase and Brock update a fourth-generation family cabin on Lake Charlotte, adding barnwood-framed windows to brighten up the space. Plus, using salvaged items and reclaimed materials, the brothers transform an original World War II Quonset hut into a bright, unique guest house with custom beds.



■ Million Dollar Contractor on Thursdays at 22:00 gives a behind-the-scenes look at the construction of Manhattan’s most elite homes with contractor to the stars Stephen Fanuka.

Along with his expert crew, Stephen works on some incredible high-end projects as the series continues in February, including his biggest challenge yet: the building of a solarium on the roof of a Central Park West apartment building.

With the help of a team of audio engineers, Stephen builds a room that’s perfectly suited to listening to music, while also pleasing to the eye. Throughout the series Stephen also shares some top tips and tricks that may be of use to first-time DIY-ers, and anyone who’s thinking of renovating their own home.


We Bought the Farm will continue on Fine Living in February on Sundays at 21:00 with double episodes.

In the first season of We Bought the Farm viewers can join outdoor-loving families looking for a simpler lifestyle as they search for their dream luxury farmhouse.

In each episode, real estate professionals help them pick their ideal property, whether it’s a quaint
country farmhouse or luxury properties on hundreds of sprawling acres.

As the first season continues in February, a Miami family with 8 kids looks for a simpler lifestyle in Martin County – but can they find a farm that has plenty of land, a spacious house, and farm animals?

Meanwhile, North Carolina couple Mike and Holly are tired of keeping their two horses in a boarding facility, so they’re searching for a farmhouse with a barn and large pastures to keep their horses happy.
