This Old House

Episode #1621

This episode is a continuation of the remodeling of a pueblo-style home built in Arizona in the 1920's. The tile floor has been removed from the library; host Steve Thomas observes as concrete, colored red with synthetic iron oxide, is tamped down to bring out the "cream", the finer sand particles. It is then scraped to a smooth finish. Master carpenter Norm Abram goes into town to visit with cabinetmaker Marshall Dennington, to check on the progress of the mesquite cabinets that are being built to go in the kitchen. Heating consultuant Richard Trethewey goes over the system that will heat and cool the house. Finally, as always, Thomas and Abrams take in some of the sights of the area, visiting a national park and an old Tucson movie studio. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
