This Old House

The Carlisle Project (Part 26 of 26) (#2426)

On the last day of the project, host Kevin O'Connor joins architect Jeremiah Eck for a look at the finished house. The show house continues as garden designer Richard Magnuson shows landscape contractor Roger Cook the rustic barn court. Senior design consultant Alexa Hampton meets Christine Welsh for a look at the sophisticated library hallway, and Robin Pelissier shows master carpenter Norm Abram how she brought a little glamour to the screen porch on the backside of the barn. Plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey drops in on designer Katy Flammia to see her fun and luxurious first-floor laundry room. In-home media specialist Dave Tovissi shows Kevin a flat screen wireless LCD TV and the state-of-the-art media alcove. In the barn entry, designer Kathleen Kennedy shows general contractor Tom Silva how she worked with the barn timbers (not against them) to design her space. As the wrap party approaches, designer Eric Cohler reveals the finished two-story barn "living hall" as a complete destination for family and friends. Outside, the team marvels at how Tom Silva and the entire crew completed a high-quality, two-year project in less than one year; it's quite possibly the greatest accomplishment in the show's 25-year history.
