E29 | Rebirth of Detroit | Summer Special

Season 42 Episode 29 | 23m 57s

Once a shining city on the hill, the last few decades have seen a tragic decline in the place known as Motor City. A housing stock that was the envy of the nation was almost abandoned. But the people of Detroit are rebuilding the neighborhoods, one block at a time. This Old House follows one family as they restore a derelict house. In the process trades people and neighbors offer help.

Funding for THIS OLD HOUSE is provided by The Home Depot.
