‘Marin McCormick of the Brady Bunch has scattered the old houses on the new show

That’s understandable for “Time Frozen”, co-hosted by Moran McCormick.

In 2019, McComeric and his “Brady Bunch” actors starred in HGTV’s “A Very Brady Renovation,” in which they replicated the show’s original studio inside the house seen in the ABC series (1969-74).

McCormick and designer Dan Vicari (“Design Star,” “Like it or List It”) found “Time Frozen” in the premiere of the discovery of the postgraduate streamer, capturing the interiors of Southern California homes in the late 1980s.

“What’s interesting about this process is that you (homeowners) can get excited, then get scared, get excited again and get scared again,” McComick, says4. “It could be a rollercoaster ride for them. They’re thinking, ‘Are we doing the right thing?’

“It’s so personal.”

At the premiere of the series, McCormick and Vikari renovated a house on Laguna Beach that hasn’t changed in more than 50 years, including its carpeted kitchen and bathroom.

“There was a designer in the area who was ready to start renovating that home with the homeowners and presented it (‘ Time Frozen ’) as a great opportunity for them,” said Vicari. The network of people attracted to the series was huge and we Really grateful.

“We are working with clients and making sure they are interested in driving this journey with us,” he says. “People buy these homes or live in them … they have something to love about them – and we want to make sure it’s respected and cherished.”

As the series unfolds, viewers will see many “Time Frozen in Time” McComeric / Vicari redesigns openly in their feelings about what they want. “They’ve often been thinking about it for a long time so they have a lot of feedback, which always results in a better house,” Vikari says. “I’ve been designing for almost 20 years and the moments you push are often what you do best.”

“Every story has become so different,” says McCormick, who has rebuilt many homes and rents with husband Michael Cummings. “It simply came to our notice then. Clients have a chance to think and for the first time let us know what they want and what they expect and what they don’t want to change.

“Living and functioning is always what owners want; Usually if you bought the house you liked it because of the year you built it – and we want to keep that feeling. “

McCormick and Vikari inevitably started the process of reforming the leaks, termites, etc. of the discovery.

“I think some homeowners are shocked, and we’re both shocked to find something of this loss,” McCormick said. “You hope you don’t find it, but you do it often and obviously (reform) changes the budget. But people won’t see it once it’s settled. They want to put their money into what is outside, but everything below is healthy – just as important as your body.

“Frozen in Time” marks the first collaboration between McCormick and Vikari.

“I have to tell you, it’s weird … when you meet someone and think you know them forever,” McComeric said of Vikari. “It’s very comfortable and right now you can oppose each other and have different opinions but in the end you really have to respect that person and love them. Dan is a real gentleman, a true artist and a great teacher … and to stay around and spend the day he It’s really fun. “

Vikari said he did not know who his co-host would be when he auditioned for the series.

“I was told a‘ female celebrity ’was attached,” she says. “You know how Hollywood can be and it was a bit scary. But it was great how we got connected. Maureen is a genius – she shows more than I can admit.”
