This Old House Create Showcase: Charleston Project

America’s most trusted home-improvement show follows the transformation of a neglected Charleston, South Carolina vacation home into a full-time residence. The This Old House crew brings the 2,000-square-foot, two-story shotgun-style home built in the late 1800s back to its former glory by restoring such historic details as pocket doors, fireplaces, two front porches, and more.
