Restoring Charleston - Netflix
In Restoring Charleston, licensed contractor Trent Fasnacht has a passion for renovating pig's ears, aka old homes in Charleston, S.C. ``I love it when people say `you cannot fix this house,' '' Trent says. ``It's a big challenge, but that's part of the excitement in a town known for its distinctive architecture style.'' The challenge stems from the condition at which Fasnacht first encounters the homes -- abandoned, condemned or burned out. He and his team demolish old additions and remove rotten materials to transform the centuries-old structures back into the beautiful homes they once were. Trent says he's no magician; just a home renovator who wholeheartedly loves every inch of restoring extremely neglected homes

Restoring Charleston - Rainbow Row - Netflix
Rainbow Row is the name for a series of thirteen colorful historic houses in Charleston, South Carolina. It represents the longest cluster of Georgian row houses in the United States. The houses are located north of Tradd St. and south of Elliott St. on East Bay Street, that is, 79 to 107 East Bay Street. The name Rainbow Row was coined after the pastel colors they were painted as they were restored in the 1930s and 1940s. It is a popular tourist attraction and is one of the most photographed parts of Charleston.
Restoring Charleston - 85 East Bay Street - Netflix
The house at 85 East Bay Street was probably built near the time of the American Revolution. Like others on Rainbow Row, it had a commercial use on the ground floor (viz., a ship chandlery) and living space above. The interior living space displays Chinese Chippendale details. In 1944, the house was purchased by Mrs. Louise Graves and restored. It was the last house along Rainbow Row to be restored following many years of vacancy.
