What's the Miter with the Corner | Brookline Mid-century Modern House
Coming up on This Old House Our Mid-century Modern house mixes stained and painted siding, typical of this style of architecture. Kevin finds Tommy using two methods for the corner edge detail. The stone wall on the front of our house was in rough shape and the sewer work took it over the edge. It's Mark McCullough's job to put it back together. But first he has to find a source for puddingstone. Thirteen years ago we tackled our first mid-century modern, a rundown house in Cambridge, MA.
