Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
The team from This Old House arrives for the winter in Santa Barbara, CA, just in time to help homeowner Jan Winford on a restoration project. Her 1907 bungalow overlooks the city's historic downtown and the Pacific Ocean. Improvements include the addition of a second floor master bedroom suite, a kitchen renovation, and exterior remodeling in the Craftsman style typical of the region. The work team then goes to the Dickenson bungalow to help with plastic water piping and a reversible brass fitting system. The special needs of this area, which is subject to earthquakes and wildfires, are considered.
