S40 E1: The Net-Zero Bungalow

Previous episode: S39 E26 | Next episode: S40 E2

In this episode:

The 40th season begins in Newport, Rhode Island where Tommy picks up Kevin and drives him across the bridge to Jamestown to this season’s first project – a 1920’s bungalow.

This Old House headed to a century-old New England cottage in Jamestown, Rhode Island, to restore the home's charm while also making it energy efficient. Homeowners Dana and Donald have a net-zero energy goal for the new home for their family of four, with state-of-the-art energy efficiency and environmental sensitivity at top of mind. For the first half of our 40th season, Sweenor Builders will be renovating the current structure as well as creating an addition that will double the size of the home. The biggest challenge? Making the two halves behave as a single, uniformly efficient and healthy whole.

Original Air Date: October 7, 2018 Season 40; Ep.01 23:43
