Tour of Historic Roxbury Architecture

Project: Accessible Home, Episode 6, Part 2



Carpenter Bob Ryley and George (from Crosswinds Enterprises) build a railing system of pressure-treated lumber and integrate it with the front porch columns.

Bob takes a tour of some of the grand old houses left over from Roxbury's heyday at the turn of the century. After a period of serious urban blight, this once-grand Boston community is making a dramatic comeback.

Back at the site, a few of the housing units have already been plastered, and some windows have been given custom sills.
