    Since this was more than a decorating remodel in both homes, I wonder if the City or County Inspector would have to visit and sign off. If so, then that would be caught and fixed. Was Dan's wood frame for his mirrors at the correct height? Anyway - a minor rant on placing televisions over the fireplace mantel...how do you watch comfortably without pushing back in a recliner? Especially in a small space, that placement is not at seated height for viewing.

    From what I just saw in the Dan thread, it sounds like it was Dan.

    But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.

    While I wasn't much of a Dan fan and not sure I'd tune in to see his show, I've known since the beginning I would never watch that Antonio dude. Does the network really think they'll get any ratings with this guy?

    When it came down to the final 2, I was convinced that the judges were feeling insecure and wanted to make sure that whomever got a show wasn't going to outshine them. Looks like they succeeded.

    It seems to me that HGTV was just going for a different demographic with this season's DS. I wasn't ovely thrilled with either finalist or this season's DS. I actually liked Lonni and her calm manner. Have not yet seen Antonio's show, so I can't really weigh in on it yet.
    I just find that I watch less and less of HGTV these days and it used to be one of my favorite channels.

    I don't get all the Antonio hate. I love his style, and it's refreshing to me to see someone on camera who is different from what's already out there. To each his own, and I'll be watching his series.

    I agree mom2! We'll be watching Antonio's show at my house. It's fun to see something a little different.

    Any combustable material has to be so many inches away from the fire box. In California the mantle has to be 18 inches away from the fire box, and Antonio's cabinet was no where near that far from the firebox, thus making it in violation if fire code.

    I'm sure that the homeowners would be made aware, at least I hope so.
