Ask This Old House
In the loft, general contractor Tom Silva shows host Kevin O'Connor a few tricks for using one of the most basic tools, a tape measure. Master electrician Allen Gallant visits homeowner Kristen Berger of Leominster, Massachusetts, and brightens up a dimly lit basement with new fluorescent fixtures. Then Tom and Kevin, along with plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey and landscape contractor Roger Cook, ask, "What is it?" in the ASK THIS OLD HOUSE loft. Later, Kevin shows Roger a software package that can be used to create a three-dimensional landscape plan. Lastly, Richard makes a HOUSE call to homeowner Wendy Smith in Duxbury, Massachusetts, and shows her how to replace the banged-up aluminum cover on an old baseboard heater. [26 minutes]
