“The Brady Bunch” house renovation is done and ready for someone to move in.
HGTV said it would totally restore the famed home in Studio City, California, last November. Designers and “Property Brothers” stars Drew and Jonathan Scott were tasked to restore the property.
According to the website, the brothers were trying to recreate the show’s ’70s vibe.
The pair also received help from “The Brady Bunch” cast Barry Williams (Greg), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Christopher Knight (Peter), Eve Plumb (Jan), Mike Lookinland (Bobby), and Susan Olsen (Cindy).

HGTV said the Brady actors gathered at the home this week to film an upcoming special about the renovation process.
“This whole show is filled with so much love, the crew, everybody behind it — it’s a work of love,” McCormick told the “Today” show. “One of the nice things about the show will be the sentimentality of it, the nostalgia,” Williams said. “Because when we’re going in the rooms, we’re reflecting on what happened and the scenes that we played.”
“They’re very specific about what goes into the house, they are trying to make it look exactly like the set, down to the wallpaper,” Plumb added. “From the outside, the house looks completely the same.”
On the “Today” show, the cast said that the actors rarely get back together. The last time was about 15 years ago, one cast member said.
Don’t Paint Walls These Colors
Recently, the “Property Brothers” revealed two basic wall colors are not recommended if one is looking to sell a home.
“Yellow walls don’t really sell these days,” said Jonathan, 41, to their client in the episode “Condo Dreams,” according to Realtor.com.
Later on, the two said their team has to “get rid of that angry ’90s red,” according to the news website. They ended up getting rid of the entire wall.
Jonathan’s twin brother also panned the home-seller for keeping skeleton and skull decor year-round.
“I don’t think most buyers want to see skulls everywhere, so we want to get rid of some of that,” Drew said.
Meanwhile, Jonathan said it’s not wise to make the television the main attraction of a room.
“I’m never a huge fan of a TV being the main focal point of a room,” he said after seeing a flat-screen TV in the center of the living room. “I’d love to see a better focal point,” he added.
