More Q&A with This Old House Host Kevin O’Connor
Q: If you could only use one which would you choose: Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat? Kevin: "Instagram. I love photos. I like brevity. I like being able to go on if needed. I hate clutter. And no, I don’t want to promote my post."
Q: What’s one thing you think people should splurge on for their home?
Kevin: "The best floors and kitchen counter tops they can afford. What’s under feet and in our kitchens sets the stage for so much more."
Q: What is your ultimate comfort food? What do you eat if you’re having a bad day?
Kevin: "Ham. And chips. And I eat them on good and bad days. And on the days in between too."
Q: What’s your least favorite chore?
Kevin: "Painting. No, laundry. Wait, washing my painting clothes."
Q: What is your favorite space to makeover and why?
Kevin: "Right now, my garage. I’m making it into a workshop and love being out there and adding to what I have, making it better, customizing every little detail. One day I’ll finish the workshop and build something out there."
Q: What is one home improvement project you wouldn’t recommend someone trying to do on their own?
Kevin: "Upgrading their electrical service. If it can kill you, let someone else do it."
