When it was learned that HGTV had won the bid for The Brady Bunch house in Los Angeles back in 2018, the company said it would “restore” the home and go from there.
HGTV senior vice president, Loren Ruch, added that they studied every frame of every episode in the series in hopes of capturing the true essence of the house when the project is complete.
One of the more pressing challenges facing the project — which involves transforming the 2,000 square-foot home in North Hollywood, Calif., that served as the exterior shot on The Brady Bunch into a 4,000-plus replica of the family’s original abode — is adding a whole new level to the structure.
The iconic North Hollywood home is only one story, so the producers are building a deeper, sunken living room to accommodate the master bedroom, the kids’ bedrooms, and that classic Jack and Jill bathroom. Greg’s attic, however, is moving to the carport since they couldn’t go any higher on the house.
The Brady Bunch debuted in 1969 and ended its run in March of 1974. It has since become a hit among syndication which has kept the show engrained in the American culture.
Six members of the cast, Maureen McCormick, Barry Williams, Eve Plumb, Christopher Knight, Mike Lookinland and Susan Olsen gathered on the red carpet for the premiere.
A Very Brady Renovation premieres Monday at 9 p.m. ET on HGTV.
