New Season Premiere: Friday, Oct. 5, on WGBH 44



A 19th-century Victorian-era home in the city of Cambridge, Mass., sits in the densely packed urban neighborhood of Avon Hill in Cambridge. Homeowners Sally and John, along with their two young daughters, must preserve the exterior of their 1887 Victorian-era former two-family house to comply with conservation district standards. Inside, however, they will eliminate decades of 1960s and ‘70s remodeling that has already stripped much of the house’s historic character. The result will be a brand-new house within the shell of an old one — an open, modern, bright Scandinavian style home.

This Old House Recycles
Beyond the design of the Cambridge Project, the This Old House crew will be deconstructing the interior and will be re-using, recycling and reselling as much of the salvaged material as possible. They will be working with EcoBuilding Bargains, a non-profit, to resell much of the salvage.
