Attack of the Giant Tile | Brookline Mid-century Modern House
Coming up on This Old House
Door jambs in a mid-century modern home have no trim. For our crew, it’s a style they don’t often see. Today Kevin finds Tommy installing interior doors with no trim.
Our homeowners have decided to use large-format tile on the floors of three levels of the house. Kevin finds Mark Ferrante handling 80-pound tiles as he lays them in the living room.
Kevin and Richard revisit a project we did in Key West in 1999, for our 20th season.
Back in Brookline, the homeowners want a gas fireplace in the living room, so of course it has a sleek, modern look. Kevin finds Chris Weiner and his crew doing the installation.
The cabinets for the kitchen are modern but it takes old-fashioned skills to install them properly. One of our original apprentices, Nathan Gilbert, is back as the lead carpenter on this kitchen project.
Tommy is working with Nathan and his father, Bill, on the install.
