This Old House

Episode #1701

Hosts Steve Thomas and Norm Abram normally observe the restoration homes owned by others. In this unusual season opener however, they begin work on the restoration of a house actually owned by THIS OLD HOUSE. The home is a 250-year old structure built sometime in the early 1700's in Milton, Massachusetts. Thomas and Abram tour both the interior and the exterior of the home with general contractor Tom Silva, looking for the potential structural problems that will have to be repaired during the course of the restoration. At the end of the construction project, the home will be sold to the highest bidder. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
