A Ranch Out Westerly | Westerly Ranch House
Coming up on This Old House
The crew arrives at the new project in Westerly, Rhode Island – a sturdy 1940’s ranch that was built and occupied by the same family since the new homeowners, Scott and Shayla, acquired it. They give Kevin and Tommy a tour of the knotty pine paneled interior.
Builder Jeff Sweenor and his architectural design team have been working with Scott and Shayla on a transformation to take advantage of the distant view of the water and they show it to Kevin on the computer.
Norm travels to California to see where the quintessential ranch house evolved.
Jeff takes a tour with Richard to see the existing garage and basement. A renovation as big as this will call for a new and efficient heating and air system as well as an updated septic system.
Outside Jenn and Roger walk the property and discuss what can be done with the varying landscape.
Jeff invites a local Habitat for Humanity crew to come and salvage a host of building materials, including the knotty pine paneling, before the demo begins.
