“What’s so exciting about this project is that we are creating one of the most iconic homes from many of our viewers’ childhoods,” Loren Ruch, senior vice president of HGTV programming and partnerships, said in a statement. “It will be the first time in history that the house from all of our memories will be created in a real brick and mortar location. It is certain to be a trip down memory lane.”
The house had originally been on the market in mid-July with an asking price of $1.9 million. McCormick told People that she considered bidding for the house, but “major players” made her reconsider.
Former NSYNC band member, Lance Bass had also been eyeing the property and had planned to renovate the inside to match the set of the show if he would’ve won the bid.
Congratulations! ❤️❤️❤️ May all your problems from here on out always be solved in a half hour! 😉

“I’m a huge Brady fan, so I wanted to turn the house into what we all knew from the television show because all they did was use it for exterior,” Bass said while at the iHeartRadio festival in Las Vegas. “The inside looks nothing like it, so I was gonna add a lot of square footage, add a second floor and try to turn it into that iconic set.”
Bass still plans to help produce HGTV’s new show. “There’s a lot of things that have to be done before we can start remodeling it, so it’s going to take a year or two,” he told People. “The fans came to my rescue. They saw how hosed I got, they forced HGTV’s hand to get me involved.”
According to the network, behind-the-scenes footage of the first day of production is in the near future.
