This Old House

Episode #1623

Host Steve Thomas and Master Carpenter Norm Abram continue their observation of the remodeling of an old pueblo-style home built in Arizona in the 1920's. First, Abram takes a visit to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, a zoo for animals native to the region, to take a look at how newer, more natural forms of animal exhibits are constructed. Back at the house, the construction is moving at a rapid pace, as stucco is applied to the exterior, wood floors with walnut accents are laid out, more energy efficient windows are installed throughout the home, and the plumbing in the master bathroom is set. We also learn why this particular house has more than one central air conditioning/heating unit. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
