This Old House

The Carlisle Project (Part 8 of 20) (#2408)

Host Kevin O'Connor and landscape contractor Roger Cook meet landscape architect Stephanie Hubbard to review her latest plan for the property, which features the rural simplicity of open spaces, low stone walls, hedges and a few new elm trees. Plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey installs a new 2,000-gallon dual compartment septic tank and formulates a plan for the rough plumbing. Master carpenter Norm Abram meets architect Jeremiah Eck to learn how his modern window selections will update the New England farmstead vernacular. In Park City, Utah, Kevin visits a house that is all about windows, and a whole lot more. General contractor Tom Silva brings in specialist Kevin Kirkland to treat the new construction with a non-toxic borate solution to protect against future insect infestations.
