Season 1, Episode 1 The This Old House Hour

First Aired: October 10, 2002

Host Steve Thomas tours a new project: a 1922 Colonial Revival house in the Boston suburb of Winchester, Mass. Its leafy neighborhood is “right out of `Leave It to Beaver',” says carpenter Norm Abram, and the house is in basically good shape. But, sighs Abrams, “the kitchen is terrible and the master bedroom is a disaster.” On “Ask This Old House,” projects include fixing a leaky washing machine, fitting a screen into a window and retrofitting an olive barrel to collect rainwater. Also: Abram makes a “house call” on a homeowner who's too tall for his basement stairwell.
