The 35th season of This Old House continues with the Lexington Project, beginning in January 2015!

This Old House: Season 35

Thursdays at 8pm on WGBX 44

 
The Lexington house before renovation.

Lexington, MA is the birthplace of American Liberty and home to dozens of authentic Colonial homes from the 1700s. In the second project of the new season, This Old House explores why the Colonial style home is still popular in America over 300 years later as they take on the renovation and addition to a 1966 Colonial Revival — the youngest project in This Old House history. The humble center-entrance Colonial has a 40-year old kitchen and some 1980s-era additions that call for upgrades and integration with a new addition over the garage designed to make space for the family’s three young daughters. A major kitchen renovation will also allow for a new mudroom, powder room, and butler’s pantry. Outside, a new farmer’s porch and some thoughtful landscaping will lend much needed charm and curb appeal to this “newer” old house.
