It's it's a wonderful experience for me yes David its satellite interviews from the house. And I was talking about my process which is that I use them. 200 year old salvaged to repair older homes. -- that -- you know -- bring them together and there wasn't room so whenever anyone said will what do you mean we're planning to him why on camera and I said well this. This window surround this from a house that burned down and this was the extension by the metropolitan museum of art and it was damaged adds it's like it's so much -- Fun. As -- -- you know you're looking -- equipment think Aaliyah that is I do like that. Stand up thinking who wished I wish had worn blue pants so does the love of home renovation and particularly of antique homes where did -- come out. IE. I really think. It comes from a place so deep that I can't describe to you any more than you know. You see a baby at the supermarket and it goes like it's -- -- that you and you die is completely die.

And the speak to me loud and clear and I can't resist them and I love to what save them. Do you what is the main beauty isn't isn't the way they were laid out it is that the material -- -- -- -- -- very different from homes now. Is it the. It's the soul that's what really happens. If you've -- -- -- I have an old reading chair and I. It if you -- a certain way and it holds you. Because the person that owned it for 200 years. -- what was that like this as it twists that way if you've ever put on vintage clothing it's that it it just kind of wants you to be a certain way.

Wonderful friends that IA I can't. You know it's funny because it it is assumed and I've been doing lots of interviews to promote the show. That that I IA who hate the word flip them and I can't. I don't think it was ever plan but once or twice I think you know my mother my agent said for the love of Mike -- just someone you know I can't. I can't anymore than you could sell it and let you know in other words you -- have a collection of these beautiful houses and I. You know. I almost hesitate to say that just the same way as he wouldn't say I collect friends you just love your friend and they gather around you and you can never have two men wouldn't be able actually spend time and that following. OK yes and only that but I love I think that the most wonderful thing in the world is when a friend. That from New York. Or Philadelphia or Chicago or someplace that they're very -- and you say here's the keys. Fresh milk and fridge your favorite coffee and the duke on the when you have dinner and they never call. Today never ever call I don't -- -- oh. -- -- in the meadow in the -- in the barn and they they have a great time. Is that is the best way to have -- -- -- -- give them their own little house one and the houses are sold so full of soul. And I well it's so clear you love us but obviously a lot of people still know you as an actor and India would do most people stopped in the street and -- -- it will -- would -- the rolling your most recognized for you really depends on. The person's age and back room. I like it when it's true romance. It just depends sometimes you know you have no idea what will be and I do. I do know that it's so wonderful. For people to say.
