This Old House

Manchester, Massachusetts (Part 6 of 26) (#2106)

Host Steve Thomas and Master Carpenter Norm Abram take a look around the new job-site office trailer that comes complete with secure storage good for keeping track of paperwork away from the chaos inside the house and for safeguarding delivered materials. Steve catches up with General Contractor Tom Silva and is shown the latest progress on the job, including the restored dormers, straightened floors and an ingenious method of raising the kitchen/family room ceiling. Norm meets up with window specialist Jay Harman and is shown three different windows to consider for the renovation. Finally, kitchen cabinet designer and manufacturer Ted Goodnow and homeowner Janet McCue show Steve a full-size mock-up of the kitchen they're considering. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
