He's been a perfect stranger ever since he left Hollywood a decade ago. But Bronson Pinchot couldn't be happier in his new life as a home-restoration specialist in rural Harford, Pa.
"I was in New York City and I was doing a Broadway show, and I was on a computer and I happened to see country houses with land around them that were the cost of half a New York City studio apartment," the former Perfect Strangers actor, 52, tells ABC's Good Morning America.
"I just got it into my head that I had to have one, and then I got another one and another one."

Eight apparently wasn't enough for Willie Aames.
The star of Charles in Charge and Eight Is Enough, after filing for bankruptcy last year and whose house is in foreclosure, has been reduced to holding a garage sale at his Olathe, Kan., home to raise some scratch.
Among the items on sale Thursday were antiques, artwork, a piano, leather couches, a TV set, a mounted lion's head and other stuffed wildlife the 48-year-old had hunted, and movie memorabilia. Aames also signed autographs while a film crew recorded the event for a TV documentary about his life, reports the Kansas City Star.
