19th-Century Character Restored

When Katherine and Murat Bicer fell for their old house, they envisioned a cheerful space for their family, but they knew it needed upgrades—so much so that they never really unpacked after buying the place in August 2014. They moved out again eight months later so that TOH TV general contractor Tom Silva and the crew could renovate the three-story, 3,200-square-foot Queen Anne. Architect Mat Cummings created the master plan, and the Bicers also tapped the expertise of kitchen designer Linda Cloutier and interior designer Amanda Reid. The renovation mantra: Keep it Victorian-era in feeling but here-and-now in functionality. Watch full episodes of the project
