Part 1: Architectural Plans, Demolition, and Door Discovery
Part 2: Touring Historic Homes in Cambridge, MA
Bob and architectural historian Brian Pfeiffer tour the neighborhood's historic homes, including the Cooper-Frost-Austin House, the oldest dwelling still standing in Cambridge, MA.
Part 3: Second-Floor Plans, Door Demolition, and Staircase Disassembly
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.
