Said Paul Greenberg, Executive Vice President and General Manager of FYI, “We are thrilled to partner with such a like-minded brand as Vox Media. This production deal speaks to the fact that FYI is truly a cross-platform brand, as well as one that’s constantly on the cutting edge of creating groundbreaking content.

No longer the generic pre-fab homes of yesteryear, architects and designers are building high-end, architecturally stunning, yet affordable fully customizable homes and getting it all done on a very short timeline. In each episode of the series, viewers will follow an individual or family as they embark on building their dream pre-fab home.
