This Old House

Episode #1714

Behind the doors of old houses always exists history. Hosts Norm Abramson, Steve Thomas, and Tom Silva consult with writer and archiectural historian Daniel S. Levy as they explore the backgrounds of past inhabitants of "this old house." The finishing details of the house continue with the installation of the central vac, the wine cellar, and the gutters. Phil Mossgraber visits to finalize the cabinet designs, and Tom and Norm briefly explain the processes for heating and floor insulation, as well as sound proofing an entire house.
