Sneak Peek: Return to Key West
Richard and Kevin take a trip back to the Conch Republic
As part of the show’s 40th anniversary, the TOH TV team is revisiting projects to see how the renovations have held up over the years.
Richard and Kevin recently headed to the southernmost part of the United States to take a look at the late-1886 “Conch Captain’s House,” which was renovated during Season 20 (1999).
The house’s name comes from the conch seashells that are abundant in Key West, and the fact that many houses in the town were built by sea captains.
The renovation included rebuilding porches, raising ceilings, and repurposing space while preserving such original features as the Dade County pine walls, stairway bannisters, and dormers.
