Ask This Old House

Episode #301

Our first House call takes us to Beverly, Massachusetts, where landscape contractor Roger Cook helps smooth out a few rough edges on a lawn for new homeowners Todd and Chrissy Fratzel. Then, it's up to the Ask This Old House loft for a lesson or two on drill bits from general contractor Tom Silva. While inside, Tom, Roger, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey, and host Kevin O'Connor ask, "What is it?" Then, Kevin visits the pros - Boston's own firefighters - to learn all about fire extinguishers. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
