Bensonwood is proud to have been featured on a new two-hour H2 special: “Hidden History In Your House,” which premiered May 22nd. Host Kevin O’Connor traveled the country uncovering the house as a technological time capsule centuries in the making. Kevin peels back the houses we live in to reveal the surprising ways that the story of America and the history of the world are hidden inside.
The This Old House crew spent a very long, but very fun day here with Tedd and associates talking timber frame history, from harvesting the forests of the eastern woodlands to finishing and raising the timbers of a colonial home. It was also a wonderful opportunity for us to reunite with our old TOH friends including director Thomas Draudt, cinematographer Jay Maurer and Kevin O’Connor. It’s hard to believe it has been six years since our Weston House project for the 2008 season, a new prefab, eco-friendly home reminiscent of barns built centuries ago.
