Carlisle | Celebrating 25 Years of Home Renovation

This Old House celebrates 25 years of home renovation by going back to its roots. The season opens with host Kevin O'Connor and master carpenter Norm Abram taking a look at the first This Old House project in Dorchester, Massachusetts—a house the show bought, renovated, and sold in 1979. This season we'll be homeowners again, with some of the proceeds from the sale of the 25th anniversary centerpiece project endowing a new scholarship for the building arts. To find just the right house, Norm takes Kevin to Carlisle, Massachusetts, a beautiful New England town 20 miles outside Boston. After looking at several properties, This Old House decides to take on an 1849 Greek Revival-style farmstead that's big on charm, but needs a lot of work to be comfortable for a modern family.
