‘Property Brothers’ take on New Canaan personal trainer

                  hen Suzanne Vining’s husband, Kevin Vining, found a new job in New York City last year, one of the more protracted hurdles of the relocation from the Albany area was finding a suitable new house with a price range of under $800,000.

After house-hunting for half a year while her husband commuted weekly from Albany, the family compromised and bought a 1950s home in Pound Ridge, N.Y., with outdated décor and furnishings that fit their budget, Vining said.

Vining said during the home search she heard the Scotts were seeking homes in Westchester and Connecticut and would make selections while she and her husband were closing in late spring.

During the eight days of filming spread from June through August, the couple and their daughters, ages 19 and 17, had to remain available to take part, she said.

While the stars of the show maintained control over the renovation, Vining said the Scotts were also open to family suggestions on color preferences.

“They were a lot of fun to work with,” Suzanne Vining said. “They gave us some latitude but we kind of went with a lot of their direction.”


“Property Brothers” will air the episode featuring the Vining family’s home at 9 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 24, on Home & Garden TV.
