Catching up in Cambridge: Insider Sneak Peek
General contractor Tom Silva and host Kevin O'Connor check in on a home TOH TV renovated in Season 27
In 2005, This Old House took on a project that might have been close to home geographically, but was otherwise out of their comfort zone. Though it wasn't the show's youngest house, this 1950 Bauhaus-inspired home was TOH's first foray into modern architecture. The homeowner—who still lives in (and loves!) the renovated house—wanted to keep the style modern, but warm it up by adding natural elements. Wood, stucco, lots of natural stone, and even a waterfall helped to turn what was nearly been a tear-down into a spectacular home. And as Kevin points out, now that the landscaping's matured, the house is truly a showpiece.
