This Old House

Episode #1626

In this final episode of the series on the restoration of a 1920's pueblo-style home in Tucson, Arizona, host Steve Thomas starts off with a tour of Biosphere Two, a famous experimental community in which the inhabitants lived virtually self-sufficiently for several months. Then he and master carpenter Norm Abram check the final progress on the jobsite, going on a room-by-room inspection tour. Abram observes as the last stucco application is completed on the exterior, and a state-of-the-art roofing cover that reflects heat is installed. With the finishing architectural details and interior design complete, the Meigs throw a completion party in their newly landscaped courtyard. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
