"This Old House" Comes to Charleston

Aug 23, 2017

The popular series "This Old House" has been a fixture on PBS  since 1980.  It has filmed in many locations across the country, and now it has come to South Carolina.  The show is shooting the renovation of a classic single-wide home in Charleston for broadcast next March. 

Host Kevin O'Connor is excited to be in the "Holy City" because the architecture is of a style not seen in the rest of the country.   General Contractor Tom Silva talks about what the construction crew will do to restore the old home, part of which involves opening up the old kitchen house with a stairway.  He describes it as "basically opening up two buildings that were connected but never opened up since 177 years ago."
