This Old House

The Carlisle Project (#2401)

This Old House celebrates 25 years of home renovation by going back to its roots. The season opens with host Kevin O'Connor and master carpenter Norm Abram taking a look at the first This Old House project in Dorchester, Massachusetts - which the show bought, renovated, and sold in 1979. This season we'll be homeowners again, with some of the proceeds from the sale of the 25th anniversary centerpiece project endowing a new scholarship for the building arts. To find just the right house, Norm takes Kevin to Carlisle, Massachusetts - a beautiful New England town 20 miles outside of Boston. After looking at several properties, This Old House decides to take on an 1849 Greek Revival-style farmstead that's big on charm, but needs a lot of work to be comfortable for a modern family.
