This Old House

Winchester, Mass. (Part 15 of 18) (#2215)

Host Steve Thomas visits Middlesex Fells Reservation-a three-by-three mile park shared by five suburban towns North of Boston-and climbs Wright's Tower to take in the cityscape and some vibrant autumnal views. Back in Winchester, Steve helps landscape contractor Roger Cook and concrete contractor Syd March pour and trowel the new front walk. Custom cabinetmaker Jeff Peavey shows Steve the unique features of the newly installed kitchen cabinets. Outside, general contractor Tom Silva shows Steve how to properly measure for storm windows. In a side story, master carpenter Norm Abram finds a custom storm window company in Connecticut that will paint aluminum storms to match any color trim. Under pressure to get the heat on down in the basement, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey shows Steve what's new with radiant heat, and how he plans to heat three different types of floors with three distinct radiant zones. Tom and Norm carry out the architect's plan for elaborate pyramidal mahogany stairs off the sun porch. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
