The Porch, Remastered: After

Excited about their first working session with the architect, homeowners Katherine and Murat Bicer led Mat Cummings to the dining room of their 1895 Queen Anne. Cummings unrolled a set of existing-house drawings across the table, spread them flat, and asked what the Bicers wanted for their house, the subject of the current season of This Old House TV. Some of the improvements they discussed would include a new kitchen, a revamped foyer, a mudroom bumpout, a generous master suite, and a new heating and cooling system.
