This Old House

Episode #1625

In this next-to-last episode featuring the restoration of a 1920's pueblo-style home in Arizona, host Steve Thomas and master carpenter Norm Abram explore the Congress Hotel, a landmark structure built in 1919 when the railroads first arrived in Tucson. Back at the house, the driveway is being laid with gray masonry units, and lap pool is completed. Plumbing and heating consultant Richard Trethewey talks with a city official from the Tucson Water Department about the difficulties involved in trying to maintain an adequate source of water in the middle of a desert. Thomas looks at a unique method of removable window cover involving liquid crystals suspended in a mylar gel, while Abram checks on the progress of the hardwood floors and cabinets in the library.
