This Old House

Episode #1813

The outdoor appearance of the Watertown project is taking shape this week as landscaping contractor Roger Cook and crew unload a truck full of plants and work to place them around the yard, while painter Steve Kiernan and his team begin work on the exterior paint job. Host Steve Thomas and landscape architect Clarissa Rowe oversee the installation of a trellis along the driveway. Inside, master carpenter Norm Abram finds terrazzo specialist Fred Morgan busy prepping the kitchen for its new floor. Down in the basement, drainage expert Bill Clayton shows Norm the new perimeter drain designed to handle any incoming water that might sneak past the outdoor system. Outside, Steve and Norm find masonry contractor Lenny Belliveau using the fresh granite from Norm's visit to the quarry to complete the look of the foundation at the front of the house.
