Season 40 - The Brookline Mid-century Modern House Episodes
Relive 40 years of This Old House with our anniversary special, featuring archival footage and brand new interviews!
The lackluster mid-century box is a modern marvel once again. Kevin and Tommy arrive to assess the transformation of the exterior of the house.

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.
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 Tommy, that means installing the rafters takes more care.

Paver selection, skylight install, sewer line replacement, and foundation repair
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.
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.
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.
