This Old House

Manchester, Mass. (Part 26 of 26) (#2126)

Steve, Norm and Tom take a look back at the past nine months on the last episode of the McCue's project and the dramatic transformations that have taken place. Richard discusses the glass and frameless shower installation that take place in the master bathroom. Tom and Norm talk about the mixed reviews the glass roof in the conservatory has gotten. Both are happy to see a marble countertop and copper sink have been salvaged and installed in the mudroom off the vestibule. The big screen tv is being fine tuned in the game room. There is some additional detailing to do in the home office -- staining of countertops and tweaking of cabinets. In the master suite, a fully adjustable closet system custom built to the McCue's needs is being installed. Janet and the interior designer walk through with Steve before the festivities in the music room to highlight all the finishing touches. The southwest corner of the home was the most dramatic part of the restoration -- the addition of the music room which was part of the structure torn down 25 years ago. Tom Silva gets the recognition he deserves for his hard work at the McCue's party, not to mention a big kiss on the lips from Janet. Both of the homeowners, Janet and David, think the project was a great success and that they have found their dream home. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
