Salvaged Brick Hearth

Project: Federal-Style Home, Episode 8, Part 1

The new portico is under construction on the front of the house. Next door, Bob takes a peek into the elegantly appointed Guillard-Bennett House, one of the jewels in Charleston's crown. Back at the project house, Richard Marks puts the finishing touches on the restoration of the house's fireplaces.

Part 2: Interior Paint Selection
Part 3: Mantelpiece Work
Bob Vila tackles the revitalization of an exquisite Federal-style home, built in the early 1800s, which survived the Civil War but barely survived Hurricane Hugo in 1989. A major aspect of the project is the painstaking process of restoring the original plaster ornamentation and woodwork to their original detail.
