This Old House | Mid-century Modern Makeover (S40 E14) | FULL EPISODE

4June 2020

Tom Silva and Kevin O’Connor cruise around Brookline, MA in a ’57 Chevy before rolling up to the latest project: a lackluster 1957 mid-century modern house in need of a total overhaul. They learn about the full scope of work, and Charlie Silva starts in on demo.

Kevin introduces Brookline, MA, the setting for the newest renovation project. Tom picks him up in a beautifully maintained 1957 Chevy and drives him to the house, which was built in the same year but hasn’t stood the test of time. They talk about the exterior features that define the mid-century label. Kevin and Tom meet homeowners Sunil and Neha, and their daughter Nisa. After Richard gives Kevin a quick tour of the lower levels, Sunil and Neha show Tom the living and sleeping levels and describe what they’re hoping to do. Kevin meets architect Linda Hamlin outside and learns about her plan to transform the plain, boxy house on a tight lot into a modern marvel. Linda takes Kevin to another modern home to show him the modern elements she hopes to incorporate into Sunil and Neha’s home. Back at the project house, Kevin meets landscape architect to see his plans for creating private but functional space on a very tight lot that the family can enjoy. His suggestions include a sunken patio, tall skinny trees and a fence along the private way. Demo begins in the lower back bedroom, where Charlie and Tom start to tear out the wood paneling and concrete slab to determine whether there’s a crawl space of slab underneath.
