bedford house this old house before

Dee and I just returned from our first visit to This Old House’s next restoration project – a really beautiful antique in Bedford, Mass. – where we’ve been selected to work as this season’s interior designers.

The homeowners are a really nice young couple with an adorable 18 month old daughter and an exciting, and very public, few months ahead for them.  Demolition has already begun and the house is wired with webcams so viewers can check in on the project at anytime – it’s a very state-of-the-art job site nestled intoa very old house.

Today’s filming  –  centered on the foundation for the new family room addition – was just getting started as we were leaving and the place was alive with producers, directors, contractors…and the owners’ three dogs!  It is really quite a production.  Stay tuned for more in the months ahead and for the season premeire on October 6th, 2011!
