New Episodes

My Lottery Dream Home | HGTV | Aug. 4 at 9|8c

David Bromstad is back to show lottery alums what their winnings can get them — and to let you live vicariously through their fairy tale house hunts. In this first episode, a couple hopes to move out of their tiny rental in favor of a house in the Washington D.C. area but realizes even they, million-dollar scratchoff winners, might get priced out of their market.

Tiny Luxury | HGTV | Aug. 7 at 11|10c

Tyson and Michelle Spiess are making some serious dreams come true with their house builds for clients: rooftop decks, his and hers closets, spacious bathtubs, custom woodwork. The catch (that’s not really a catch when you consider all these people are getting in their custom homes)? Tiny houses!

House Hunters: Where Are They Now? | HGTV | Aug. 21 at 10|9c

The buyer who just couldn’t get over all of the (removable) carpet throughout that one house. The buyer who worked as an “artist” but could somehow afford a significantly hefty mortgage. We know you’ve wondered about them and how they’re doing now. Get some interesting updates from the best buyers seen on House Hunters in this special spinoff series of your favorite HGTV mainstay.

Tiny House, Big Living | DIY Network | Aug. 24 at 9|8c

The title of this show could not be more appropriate or self-explanatory, really. We’ve already seen everything from an Alaskan yurt to a Jersey Shore floating tiny house. This season, we’ll see even more creative designs, like a tiny firehouse-on-wheels, complete with a red garage door, a functional fire hydrant and a fire pole from the upstairs loft.

Property Brothers: Buying & Selling | HGTV | Aug. 30 at 9|8c

Think the brothers are ready for the Nashvegas market? Drew and Jonathan start this new season by helping homeowners in Nashville get top dollar to move to their forever homes. There may or may not be a 200-year-old farmhouse, a rattlesnake and country music involved.

And the following favorites are still airing new episodes throughout the summer:
