Sneak Peek: Next Season/Jamestown, RI

Get a really early look at one of next season’s projects

Moving right along, the TOH TV team is already at work on next season! One of the houses they are tackling is located in Jamestown, RI, a coastal town just across Narragansett Bay from Newport. Many of Jamestown’s houses date from the late 1800s and early 1900s, when summer visitors built modest cottages to enjoy the ocean breezes and sandy beaches. Today, those dwellings—uninsulated since they were originally built just for the summer season—are being rebuilt to increase energy efficiency but keep the old charm. That’s the plan with the TOH TV house, with plans by Don Powers, a Providence architect who has lived in Jamestown for more than 10 years.
