This Old House
television's project in East Boston is a 1916 two-family builder's special that needs a lot of updating and repair. The new owners, Christine Flynn and Liz Bagley, are an aunt and niece who bought out the rest of their relatives to take over a house that has been in the family since it was built. They have only $250,000 between them to make their dated, worse-for-the-wear 15 rooms into two cushy apartments—without ignoring the long neglected roof, porches, and stucco exterior.
