Attack of the Giant Tile | Brookline Mid-century Modern House
Coming up on This Old House Door jambs in a mid-century modern home have no trim. For our crew, it's a style they don't often see. Today Kevin finds Tommy installing interior doors with no trim. Our homeowners have decided to use large-format tile on the floors of three levels of the house. Kevin finds Mark Ferrante handling 80-pound tiles as he lays them in the living room. Kevin and Richard revisit a project we did in Key West in 1999, for our 20th season.
