E29 | Rebirth of Detroit | Summer Special
Once a shining city on the hill, the last few decades have seen a tragic decline in the place known as Motor City. A housing stock that was the envy of the nation was almost abandoned. But the people of Detroit are rebuilding the neighborhoods, one block at a time. This Old House follows one family as they restore a derelict house. In the process trades people and neighbors offer help.
This Old House, with pros Norm Abram, Tom Silva, Richard Trethewey, Roger Cook, and host Kevin O'Connor, is TV's original home-improvement show, following one whole-house renovation over several episodes.
