    Re: Cambridge/Essex

    Don't you love how you have to post in a thread that's a couple projects old? TOM.com completely missed Barrington and it looks like they're going to let these two slip by also. What a shame.

    Barrington Deck Rail System

    I finally caught up with the last season and had a question about the deck rail system. If you recall, there weren't any ballusters. Instead the system used horizonatl wires running post to post. ...

    Re: slow it down and add costs

    Credit the show for a fairly decent discussion of the costs of LED lighting in the most recent episode.

    Re: slow it down and add costs

    I'll defend the show a little on this one. I don't think it's feasible to go into the amount of construction detail you're looking for. Specifics such as the pitch of the roof under the deck are a...

    Re: ownership of Auburndale house

    OK, I'm going to check myself a little here. I just went to the Assessor's Database myself. It doesn't list the entire sales history - just the most recent two. It shows the Sharmas buying the...

    Re: ownership of Auburndale house

    Well if that's the case, that segment of the show was one big fat lie. If I remember correctly from the show, the son said he grew up watching his father develop pictures in that room. The...

    Auburndale Roof

    I'm glad to see they're doing away with that flat garage roof. It defintely did not fit with the character and style of the home. That said, what they are going to doesn't fit either. The roof on...

    Re: Share your lessons learned from TOH

    I've picked up a bunch of great ideas over the years - far more than I could ever consciously remember. In almost any medium to large size project I do now, it's almost guaranteed that I'll pull...
  13. Re: Looking for This Old House TV fans born in 1979

    This is an interesting concept and idea but I see one major problem. Anyone born in '79 will have little to no memory of the Vila years. Sure they may have seen reruns, but that's not really...

    Looking Forward To It

    Based on just the single blog entry on this project, I think it will be a good one. It should also satisfy a lot of the recent complainers on this board about the direction of TOH - The project...

    June's Cover

    First off, I'll admit I'm likely making more of an issue out of something than there is. I got my June issue a couple days ago and the cover bothers me. It's been over Photoshopped and it's a poor...

    Next TV Project?

    Does anyone know the timing or details for the next project? I expect it will in the Boston area and imagine they should be starting soon now that spring is (trying to get) here.
  18. Re: Anyone else not digging the interior designer?

    I'm not a fan either. I don't want to be too critical because, as many have mentioned, interior design has a lot to do with taste. That said I'm not sure she's a good fit for this old house. She...

    March Issue

    I got my new issue yesterday. Is it just me or was it a little less than full. I feel liked they skimped on the quality. Heck, one of the biggest spreads a multipage advert for Bensonwood. Maybe...
