Ty Pennington is gearing up to launch a new online video series on NextGenHomeTV called "'First to the Future' Home." The weekly program will be dedicated to smart products and home design for next-generation homes.
Backing his effort will be Fiberon, who has signed on as a gold-level sponsor of the show. As part of the partnership, Fiberon's new ProTect Advantage line of wood-alternative decking and Fiberail composite railing will be featured on an episode this spring.
“Fiberon is a perfect fit for Ty’s ‘First to the Future’ Home series and its emphasis on products for smarter home construction,” said Doug Mancosh, president of Fiberon. “Our family of wood-alternative products features the sustainability, durability and functionality, not to mention the beauty, that the next-generation of homes will require.”
The program will showcase the process of building an energy-efficient, weather- and storm-resistant home near St. Augustine, Fla. The completed home will be revealed later this year, at which point the show's website will feature a complete overview of the products used during construction.
Pennington rose through the ranks as the host of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" on ABC, which aired from 2004 through 2012.
