Charlestown Project 2014: 35 Years of This Old House  

Season 13 opens in Boston, where an 1850s-era Greek Revival house is to be upgraded. The homeowner would like to improve the kitchen and the third floor, where the master suite is located. The retaining walls also need work. In the second half: rust staining; the installation of a pass-through in a load-bearing wall; and the replacement of a poorly built fence gate. Also: NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio joins the fun when the guys play "What is it?"

Charlestown Project 2014: Brick Rowhouse Blues  

A fix for a major problem: exterior walls that are bowing outward. Two weeks of work in the basement, meanwhile, has lowered the floor by several inches; the radiant heat-insulation system is installed; and it's shown how the roof is under-structured. Norm also revisits a Charlestown townhouse featured on the show 14 years ago. In the second half: citrus greening, a disease killing citrus trees in Florida, is discussed. Also: replacing a vinyl peel-and-stick floor with ceramic tile.
