Aug 12 2021 • 36 mins


Stars of the new series Cheap Old Houses talk about what inspired the creation of their viral Instagram account. Elizabeth and Ethan Finkelstein join host Marianne Canada to talk about their obsession with historic homes and how they hunt for cheap old houses that are all on the market for under $150,000. The couple talks about how their show dives even deeper into their affection for old homes and advocacy for slow, intentional restoration that stays true to the home’s character. Daniel Kanter, self-proclaimed serial renovator gets honest about his journey renovating an 1865 Greek revival house, the ups and downs of committing to a historic home, and his number one piece of advice for someone who is considering purchasing an old home.
