This Old House

The Carlisle Project (Part 15 of 20) (#2415)

As part of the 25th anniversary season, host Kevin O'Connor returns to the show's first timber frame barn project, the Concord Barn, to see how the building has held up over the last 15 years and to learn from homeowners Lynn and Barbara Wickwire what it's really like to live in a barn. Chimney specialist Mark Schaub oversees the prep and pour of a new flue for the living hall fireplace. Back in Carlisle, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey shows Kevin the anatomy of the new submersible pump that will be 400 feet underground inside the new well. Master carpenter Norm Abram and general contractor Tom Silva show Kevin how to work with the latest generation of pressure treated lumber while building the front entry porch.
