This Old House

Manchester, Mass. (Part 11 of 26) (#2111)

Host Steve Thomas begins the show from the craggy shoreline of the project site to see the rapidly improving look of the exterior of the house, which has now regained its missing wing and third floor dormers. General contractor Tom Silva and master carpenter Norm Abram take a progress tour of the house highlighting how the dormers add new dimensions to the third floor exercise room. Tom shows Norm the beginnings of a second floor deck, while Norm checks out the installation of the custom made window in the stairwell. Landscape contractor Roger Cook, landscape architect David Hawk, and homeowner Janet McCue discuss plans for the new landscape, with special consideration given to the idea of changing the size and location of the current driveway. The kitchen design has been finalized, and designer Kevin Finnegan takes Steve through a full-size mock-up of the kitchen that allows the owners to have a sense of traffic flow and space.
