Jeff works to uncover the bones of the rooms and brings in added historic details to make each space feel like they belong in the house. Along the way he attempts to find a hidden fireplace, patches up an old staircase and sources unique handmade tile local to Bucks County.

The living room was added with the 1980s renovation, and is chock full of bad wood paneling. He brings in reclaimed barn beams to create a threshold in between the rooms, adds a unique blend of rustic cabinetry and makes a coffee table out of a surprise piece he finds on the property.
