This Old House

Charlestown, Mass. Project House (Part 14 of 18) (#2014)

Having suffered the indignity of an architecturally inappropriate vinyl storm door, the entryway at the Charlestown project house receives the full attention of specialty painter John Dee as he begins the restoration process of the old wooden double doors. Host Steve Thomas puts home renovation into perspective for viewers when he visits Boston's Central Artery Tunnel project, also known as the Big Dig. As Steve tours what is currently being called the largest public works project in the country, he learns about the challenges involved in depressing a major highway beneath a vibrant historic city.
