This Old House

Episode #1608

Host Steve Thomas opens up the program with a visit to the Nantucket Whaling Museum where he learns about whales and the Nanatucket's whaling industry. Back at the house, Richard Trethewey and Norm Abram watch as wells are drilled for the ground-coupled heat pump. Thomas tours Nantucket to see the many parcels of land purchased by the Nantucket Land Bank Commission. The commission perserves these lands and keeps them open for the public. Homeowner Kathy McGraw Bentley reviews kitchen plans and selects flooring. The lighting fixtures are also selected and discussed with the electrician. It is easier for the electrician to run in the wiring needed for the lighting fixtures at the framing stage. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
