The Charleston Houses 2018

    Charleston, South Carolina, is the second town for the 39th season of This Old House. The TOH crew will renovate and restore two historic homes in the city, working with new apprentices to get the job done. The apprentices will come from the American College of the Building Arts, also located in Charleston, the only school in the U.S. that offers a bachelor’s degree in traditional building trades.
