From age 2 until she went away to college, Liz McQuillan Delfino lived with her parents in this 1879 house in Newton, Massachusetts. When her mother passed away Liz inherited the property, and now, after almost two decades, she is getting ready to move back into the house she grew up in, along with her husband, Joe Delfino, and their two girls.
But not before the This Old House team goes through the Italianate foursquare home, renovating, adding on, and updating, all while filming the process for the new TV season, airing this month. Along with some updates and energy improvements, there will also be a new kitchen, a garage addition, and a family room addition with master suite above. It’s a house for the next generation in more ways than one: As part of TOH’s Generation NEXT initiative, eight apprentices will be working alongside the crew every step of the way.
