E8 | Lexington Modern | Drop in the Gutter

Season 45 Episode 8 | 23m 42s

The roof of the Lexington project is a mix of multiple roof types and pitches. A custom gutter with a downspout is recessed into the overhang to manage the volume of rainfall it will yield. The house next door, one of three designed and built by the same original architect and still maintains much of the original mid-century modern features, is toured. New energy-efficient windows are installed.

Aired: 11/15/23 | Expires: 11/30/23
Funding for THIS OLD HOUSE is provided by The Home Depot.
