Curb Appeal: The Block

Curb Appeal: The Block

HGTV's Curb Appeal travels to Atlanta to help beautify homes on the same block with a variety of makeovers. In each episode of "Curb Appeal: The Block", designer John Gidding, contractor Chip Wade and project manager Kimberly Lacy overhaul one home's exterior with a makeover so dramatic it's no longer considered the neighborhood eyesore but the envy of the block. Next, they make their way up and down the street to repaint front doors, add window boxes and provide smaller-scale makeovers that create instant impact and increase the value of the entire block.

Episode Info

Final: 4x13 -- A 1970's General Store Is Transformed Into a Charming Home (Aug/18/2012)

Diana Phillips and Mate Adamkovics recently purchased a home in Oakland that used to be a general store up until the 1970's, but is now a residential home. The entrance is extremely awkward as there is a decrepit wooden fence and an overgrown persimmon tree blocking most of the house, which is a bright sea foam blue color. This project will certainly be a challenge, but if anyone can handle it, it's designer John Gidding. John's vision is to incorporate the history of the house while making it a comfortable and charming residence for this family.

Hillary and John Tate ShowRating: 1 likes, 0 dislikes

I am an avid viewer of your show. It is wonderful that your show spends thousands of dollars to give families help in improving their homes and neighborhoods. I was however extremely disturbed while watching this episode. Disturbed that is by the unbelievable gaul of Hillary Tate. Not only was she getting thousands of dollars worth of free work to her home, but she was getting acceptance of her neighbors view from their homes. This woman repetedly hounded and harassed your crew with her annoying questions and her attitude and indecisions. Did she not understand that your company was paying for the painters which had to be sent away because of her annoying undecissiveness????? These problems and delays were unecessay since she ended up letting her husband pick the color originally chosen. The next time she wants work done on her home..she should PAY FOR IT HERSELF!!!!! Your crew were SAINTLY patient with her. I would have told her to pay for the painting of the house herself and left. Read more

WOW!! I really enjoy the show. I think it is great to help people improve their neighborhood.I've always kept my home and yard looking nice only to have others on the block taking away from the appearance of my property. Now unfortunately because of age,disability and limited income, I can't do it anymore. Sometimes my home is the eyesore now. Keep up the great work and I hope this show is on for a long time. Love HGTV and Curb Appeal The Block. If ever in New Orleans , remember me I could use some Curb Appeal. Read more
