Ask This Old House Goes To Fort Mill

David: This article is from heraldonline.com writen by Jenny Overman.

Mark and Cindy Slafka often spend weekend mornings watching episodes of ?Ask This Old House.? Having an episode of one of their favorite television shows filmed at their own home was something could hardly dream of.

But early Thursday morning, the home improvement television show?s production trucks rolled into their driveway and the couple welcomed Richard Tretheway, the show?s plumbing and heating expert, into their homes.

Cindy Slafka sent an email to show producers more than a year ago via the show?s website, explaining that they had recently built a home in Baxter Village but hadn?t had builders install a home humidifier. Slafka wondered if ?Ask This Old House? would be interested in taking on the project. The Slafka?s have three children. In the winter, their home dries out and the kids have dry skin and chapped lips, Cindy Slafka said.

?We just want to be more comfortable,? she said.

She didn?t receive an immediate response and put the installation of the humidifier on the family?s ?to do? list.A few weeks ago, they received the call that ?Ask This Old House? would be filming in the Charlotte area and would like to help solve the Slafka family?s problem.

?They said it?s a problem they?d never addressed before,? Cindy Slafka said.
