Posted by in Home Improvement Tips, on November 5, 2015

Kevin discusses This Old House's history renovating Colonials and Colonial Revivals. Demo on the Lexington house begins with the back porch. Kevin visits a concrete shop in Amesbury, MA to see them make the prefabricated concrete footings needed for our job. Norm explains the framing of the first floor platform from underneath, and then helps Tom build the rear gable wall of the addition. The new prefab footings are unloaded into the backyard, set, leveled and plumbed. Kevin explains the building permit process and the role of the building commissioner, Fred Lonardo, as he comes in to make his first inspection on the footings.
