This Old House

Manchester, Mass. (Part 5 of 26) (#2105)

Transformation continues on the Manchester house. The new foundation is backfilled and General contractor Tom Silva's team is busy putting up the forms for the new terrace. Homeowners David and Janet McCue meet with kitchen cabinet designer and builder Ted Goodnow to begin laying out the new kitchen, pantry and office. David and Host Steve Thomas go with Ted to view a kitchen done by Ted's firm to get some more ideas about design features and materials. Back at the house, Tom Silva and Norm Abram discover original fragments of the old house, which include the roof, a dormer and a gabled sidewall. Norm considers the original fabric of the building as the team begins to make roofing choices. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
