Touring the Home Interior

Project: Bob's Shingle Style Home, Episode 1, Part 2



Bob gets started on the Cambridge project with architect Greg Rochlin and carpenter Bob Ryley and explores Harvard Square with architectural historian Brian Pfeiffer.

Part 1: Touring the Home Exterior
Part 2: Touring the Home Interior
Bob and architect Gregory Rochlin tour the interior of the Shingle Style home. Bob notes the surprising choices made in prior remodels that are not appropriate for an 1890s house. Bob's remodeling will involve taking advantage of the house's great scale and space and restoring original elements. He meets up with carpenter Bob Ryley, who is checking the structural parts of the house. The attic looks sound, and it should be easy to take down most of the ceilings.
Part 3: Taking an Architectural Tour of Harvard Square
This project centers around the remodel of Bob Vila's own gracious Shingle Style home in Cambridge, MA. It's a house with a lot of history and beautiful architectural details, many of which were obliterated in remodels of the 50s and the 70s. On the centennial of the house's construction, Bob gets together the best talents in the business to recreate and renew it to its former glory, making some important modifications along the way that will transform this into a dream house for today.
