This Old House

Discover America’s leading home improvement series, the Emmy® Award-winning THIS OLD HOUSE®. Follow home renovations from start to finish with America’s favorite team of experts – Norm Abram, Tom Silva, Rich Trethewey, Roger Cook and Kevin O’Connor.
The Charlestown project features the renovation of an 1850 Greek Revival Rowhouse. The modest red brick rowhouse needs extensive masonry and structural reinforcement. An enlarged dormer out front and a small bump out in the back will make room for new living spaces that will preserve the old-house feel while adding amenities for modern living. Crumbling retaining walls, a 1980s kitchen, a broken down and leaking master shower, inefficient windows, and old heating system and failing roof will all be upgraded.
