Season 40 - The Brookline Mid-century Modern House Episodes
S40 E26: Taking Modern Back to the Future

Coming up on This Old House: making plate glass and windows, cold weather painting, heated driveway, patio install
S40 E22: What’s the Miter with the Corner
Our Mid-century Modern house mixes stained and painted siding, typical of this style of architecture. Kevin finds Tommy using two methods for the corner edge detail.
S40 E21: Can We Cantilever
The final roof section of the house is over the new living room addition. It’s unique because it cantilevers out over a balcony. But as Kevin finds out from Tom, that means installing the rafters takes more care.

S40 E19: Stone Cold Pavers
Paver selection, skylight install, sewer line replacement, and foundation repair
S40 E18: Norm Revisits a Skylight
One of Norm’s first projects for This Old House was to install a skylight on our first renovation in Dorchester, MA. Today Norm teaches the next generation of tradespeople how to master that skill.
S40 E17: Beam Me Up, Tommy
Like most Mid-Century Moderns, ours has deep soffits. Tom and Charlie fashion them out of PVC. Tom explains the need to compensate for expansion and contraction based on the weather.
S40 E16: Apprentices in Sill School
Outside, the foundation has been poured and framing has begun. Norm teaches Erick and Carly how to lay the sill.

While old fixtures are salvaged and asbestos is removed at the house, Norm, Richard and Kevin head back to where it all began 40 years ago, in Dorchester, MA.
S40 E14: Mid-century Modern Makeover
