Washington, DC | Reviving an Abandoned 1879 Rowhouse

Master Carpenter Norm Abram and host Kevin O'Connor travel to Washington, D.C., to help non-profit developer Mi Casa Inc. renovate an abandoned 1879 row house. The group attempts to preserve economic diversity in transitioning neighborhoods by selling renovated houses to low-income families at below-market costs. Architect Genell Anderson envisions a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home that features exposed brick, dramatic lighting, new windows, and updated amenities. With only $200,000 to work with, general contractor Mahyar Mahvi is hoping to save as much of the original house structure as possible. Norm and Kevin agree that the fire-damaged shell is going to need a lot of work, and that the budget must be spent carefully.
