This Old House

Santa Barbara, California (Part 4 of 7) (#1923)

We check out the framing of the Santa Barbara bungalow's new second-story master suite-and take in its stunning views of the Pacific. Then we head off to a small art-tile kiln in nearby Ojai where Jan's Arts-and-Crafts-style backsplash, counter and fireplace tiles are being made. General contractor Steve Crawford discusses the aesthetic challenges he faces in giving the exterior an authentic historic look. City fire codes that protect against the threat of wildfire mean that he will have to use modern, non-flammable building materials such as Class A fire-rated asphalt roofing and fiber-cement sidewall shingles.
