I did a top-to-bottom renovation of my house in Moncton in 2015 before I sold it, converting it from an old house that wouldn't sell to a house that sold for $80,000 more than it was valued. I won't say I was taught by 'This Old House', but I was taught by years of reno shows, YouTube videos, trial & error - and one high school carpentry class. Here's the photo proof. I was especially proud of the wainscotting. And of being able to learn and do skilled and physically demanding work on my own. We need more content that focuses on skilled workers, and less content that focuses on celebrities and stars. Not just in home and garden television, but everywhere. Because everybody should have this sort of independence.
