This Old House

Manchester, Mass. (Part 19 of 26) (#2119)

Landscape contractor Roger Cook and crew enclose the new spa in veneer stone. Inside, homeowner Janet McCue has roped two friends into helping her complete the stripping and re-glazing of the half-round bump-out windows. The music room receives its final, finish coat of acoustical plaster, and master carpenter Norm Abram checks out a new four-oscillating head sander that flooring contractor Pat Hunt is using. Plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey visits Kohler, Wisconsin, to see how one company has used computer-aided engineering to design a toilet "engine" that meets the challenge of using only 1.6 gallons per flush. Back at the house, general contractor Tom Silva shows Host Steve Thomas a flexible molding that bends around the radius of the kitchen bay and matches perfectly with the wooden moldings on the straight runs.
