Outer Beauty

This fall, This Old House TV will visit the storied neighborhood of Avon Hill, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to feature the overhaul of an 1887 Queen Anne house in a historic area. Built originally as a two-family residence and later adapted to accommodate a family on each of its three floors, the house will soon be a single-family residence. Strict local standards limit changes to its exterior, which will include a new paint job, some reconfigured windows, and a smattering of modest alterations. But inside, TOH general contractor Tom Silva and his team will perform a drastic alteration that will essentially create a brand-new house within the shell of the old one.
