This Old House

Winchester, Mass. (Part 18 of 18) (#2218)

In the final show of the Winchester project, host Steve Thomas checks out the new garage storage system, comprised of diamond-plated cabinets, toolboxes and adaptable "gear walls." Window treatment specialist Kevin Murphy shows Steve the custom shades and drapes ordered by mail, and A/V expert Mike Smith shows him an "out of the box" media room solution that won't break the bank. Landscape contractor Roger Cook literally lays the groundwork for a lush new lawn next spring with a three-layer customizable grass seed mat. Master carpenter Norm Abram and coppersmith Larry Stearns install a This Old House weathervane atop the finished garage, while Steve test-drives some high-tech toys for the new home office. Moments before the wrap party begins, interior designer Carolina Tress-Balsbaugh reveals her multi-textured design scheme for the sunroom, living room and dining room. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
