Trial and Error

Home With a Helipad on Frontdoor.com

January 14, 2008 12:50 PM

If I didn’t already work from home, I would definitely commute to work via helicopter.

So if any of you copter commuters are looking for a new pad, complete with a helipad, of course, check out new show “Cool Houses Daily” from frontdoor.com.

Frontdoor.com is the Scripps-owned site catering to home buyers that launched late last year. The site offers three online Web shows: “Savvy Woman Homebuyer,” “Cool Houses Daily” and “REwrap.”

Other episodes of “Cool Houses Daily” have included famous architect-designed homes, best bachelorette buys and island escape homes.

It’s a cute show, but what’s missing is the host. The show’s host never appears on-screen. We only hear her voice. I’d like to put a face with the name, though.

Is it all about houses .3 percent of the population can afford, or do they show realistic houses, too?

Good question, Bryan. In that episode and others, most of the homes are of the fantasy variety. I think the show is mainly designed to satisfy the home gawker in all of us...
