The Wayland House 1
In this episode:
The historical renovation of "Kirkside," an 1815 Colonial Revival-style home, included new septic and heating systems; a new roof and chimneys; and the repair of the master suite.
Reviving an elegant survivor was the assignment of the season, and This Old House approached the task with one eye on history and the other on practicality. Kirkside, an 1815 National Historic Register home in Wayland, Massachusetts, needed basic repairs and systems upgrades from rooftop to basement floor. The renovation effort expanded the dark and cramped kitchen, refurbished the four—season porch, master bedroom and ballroom, and restored the house's historic paint scheme and portico.
