This Old House

Charlestown, Mass. Project House (Part 11 of 18) (#2011)

The transformation of the Charlestown project house is coming along according to plan, including the metal spiral staircase that will be installed on the exterior of the rear ell and run from the Beliveaus' new kitchen to street level. The stairs are fabricated locally, and master carpenter Norm Abram visits the nearby shop to learn about the art and engineering behind this structure. Meanwhile, landscaping contractor Roger Cook and landscape architect David Hawk begin the process of creating two private outdoor spaces, one for the renters and one for the Beliveaus.
