Part 2: Touring the Vassall-Craigie-Longfellow Historic House

Bob visits the historic mid-Georgian Vassall-Craigie-Longfellow House with National Parks Service representative Jim Shea. Bob describes the home's unique history and notes its many architectural features.

Part 3: Building a Metal Stud Wall in the Basement
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.
