The Milton House 1
In this episode:
With the help of Julia Child, Marian Morash, Ethan Allen and Laura Ashley, to name a few, This Old House turned an Antique Colonial farmhouse into a dream house.
"Everywhere we go, the number one thing people always ask is, 'When are we going to see your houses on the show!' Well, with our Milton project, viewers finally got their chance..." When This Old House opened the doors to its 19th season on PBS, it wasn't a new set of homeowners welcoming viewers, but the show's host and master carpenter. In a dramatic twist, the series' producers turned the tables on the This Old House team by putting the whole cast in the homeowner's shoes. Their challenge: to turn an antique Colonial farmhouse and its classic red barn in Milton, Massachusetts, into their vision of a "dream house" and a This Old House Show House.
