Charleston Single House: Built to Last
This Old House lends a hand on the renovation of an 1840's “single house” in Charleston, South Carolina, with the goal of preserving its unique character while creating a comfortable family home.
The second project of the upcoming 39th This Old House season will take place in Charleston, South Carolina, a town rich in history, with many architectural gems in need of saving. The crew—along with apprentices from the American College of the Building Arts, the only school in the U.S. that offers a bachelor’s degree in traditional building trades—will help restore two of Charleston’s quintessential historic homes, both of which require extensive renovations to restore their original beauty while making them functional for modern families.
