This Old House Comes to Charleston

By Natalyn Klump

This Old House Charleston

 

The Emmy Award-winning This Old House is returning to SCETV for its 39th season and, for the first time, will feature two South Carolina projects.

Charleston is a town rich in history, with many architectural gems in need of saving. The This Old House crew will help restore two of Charleston’s quintessential historic homes, both of which require extensive renovation to restore their original beauty, while at the same time making them functional for modern families.

The first Charleston project is an 1840s single house with a separate kitchen building. Located in the historic Ansonborough neighborhood, it will be home to Scott and Kathleen and their two teenagers. Work will include renovation of wood floors, plaster and medallions; connecting the kitchen house to the main house; adding a dining room and living suite; and landscaping.

The Charleston episodes of This Old House premiere on SCETV on March 29 at 8:00 PM.

The ETV Endowment of South Carolina and SCETV invite you to a sneak peek of the first Charleston episode of This Old House, television’s original home improvement show.  Host Kevin O’Connor and the team will introduce the two projects in the Holy City.
