Charlestown Project

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.

Lexington Project

Lexington is the birthplace of American Liberty and home to dozens of authentic Colonial homes from the 1700s. In this project, THIS OLD HOUSE explores why the Colonial style home is still popular in America mroe than 300 years later as they take on the renovation and addition to a 1966 Colonial Revival. The humble Colonial has a 40-year-old kitchen and some 1980s-era additions that call for upgrades and integration with a new addition over the garage designed to make space for the family’s three young daughters. A major kitchen renovation will also allow for a new mudroom, powder room and butler’s pantry. Outside, a new farmer’s porch and some thoughtful landscaping will lend much needed charm and curb appeal to this “newer” old house.
