It's been 50 years since the world first heard the story of a lovely lady and a man named Brady.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic family sitcom, The Brady Bunch, the original six actors from the show have reunited to renovate the Los Angeles home which served as the backdrop for the series.   

Natalie Morales and Today stopped by the job site to catch up with the Brady kids, who are all now grown adults, to get a look at the project which is being filmed for HGTV's A Very Brady Renovation.

Mike Lookinland who played Bobby told Today that he 'literally didn't know where this place was until 1990.'

Mike said there was a 'rush of nostalgia' upon seeing the home.

HGTV purchased the home in August and announced that they would be restoring the property 'it to its full, resplendent, unabashedly '70s grandeur' with the help of the original cast.
