A Charleston Family House is Reborn | The Jamestown Net-Zero House
Coming up on This Old House
New apprentices Mary McGuire Smith and Kevin Barker join the team in Jamestown as the roof goes up. Kevin gets a chance to chat with both of them as they strap on tool belts and get to work.
The homeowners have designed numerous kitchens over the years, so they already have a good idea of what they like. They visit a cabinet showroom to finalize their plans.
Jeff and the apprentices replace a rotted sill beam with a new pressure-treated one. Then they start to sheath the old part of the house.
It’s the finish line at Judith’s house in Charleston, South Carolina. What started as an abandoned house that would be demolished in any other city has now been restored by an army of local craft people.
Kevin and Tom take the grand tour with Judith and Julia.
