HGTV's Hidden Potential

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

HGTV's Hidden Potential
Anyone else impressed by this show and the rendering software they use in particular?
It looks as if I'm not the only one who has shown interest in just how they do that.
How long do you think it takes for them to put something like that together?

I think the software is neat. However, the show annoys me because they don't show what the people ultimately did with the space.

Also, there are times where they are clearly cheating. I recently saw an episode where they claimed they were leaving the appliances because of cost, but in the rendering, they were replaced with stainless appliances. I suspect that what they show is not meant to be accurate beyond the architectural details.
