How to Start an Organic Garden

Posted by in Home Improvement Tips, on May 22, 2018

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wx4C0QAVmnE

Ask This Old House landscape designer Jenn Nawada gives some tips on starting an organic garden. Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Skill Level: Beginner Shopping List:
Organic seeds or seedlings
Organic soil
Ceramic or cedar planters Steps: 1. Every material used in an organic garden needs to be certified organic.
2. Planters can be made out of cedar or ceramic.
3. The soil must be organic as well. If you’re not using a planter, you’ll need to dig out a hole and remove the soil in the ground to replace it with organic soil.
4. Seedlings and seed packets also need to have a certified organic label.
5. For any garden, Jenn recommends asking yourself why you want to start a garden to determine what types of plants should go in there. Resources:
In order to qualify as organic, every material used in the garden must be certified organic. Check the labels of plants, soils, and even potting material to be certain everything is actually organic. Everything Jenn demonstrated in the segment, including the seeds, seedlings, planters and soil, can all be found at home centers and nurseries. Ask This Old House TV

Generation Next | How to Reface a Fireplace with Granite

Posted by in Home Improvement Tips, on May 21, 2018

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmX8IJRxQ4s

Ask This Old House mason Mark McCullough teaches apprentice Krysten how to reface a granite fireplace. Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Time: 3-4 hours Cost: $2000 Skill Level: Moderate Tools List for Refacing a Fireplace with Granite:
Prybar
Brick hammer
Bucket
Notched trowel
Level
Rubber mallet Shopping List:
Granite pieces, cut to size
Drop cloth
Mortar
Concrete construction adhesive Steps: 1. Handling heavy masonry materials is a two-person minimum job. Do not attempt to do this alone.
2. Carefully pry away the old granite using a prybar. Start from the top and work your way down.
3. Protect the floor with a folded drop cloth. A scrap piece of 2×4 can be used as a lever to pry the hearth.
4. Apply a layer of mortar on the subhearth using the trowel. Add a few blobs in key areas to allow the hearth to be wiggled into place.
5. Place the hearth on the mortar and check for level. Hit it with the rubber mallet to make adjustments.
6. Generously apply concrete construction adhesive to the back of the legs and the top granite piece.
7. Place both legs on each side and check them for level.
8. Place the top carefully and check for level. Resources:
Refacing a fireplace is a two-person job. Use caution when handling heavy materials. It’s challenging to match granite, so it makes more sense to order four new pieces rather than just one or two replacement pieces. A local stone fabricator can template the fireplace and cut and round each piece to the appropriate size. In this case, Mark used granite in the color Black Pearl, fabricated by International Stone, Inc. (http://www.internationalstoneinc.com/). To adhere the granite to the fireplace, Mark used a concrete construction adhesive manufactured by Quikrete (https://www.quikrete.com/). The other materials Mark used for this job, including the chisel, hammers and buckets, can all be found at home centers. Ask This Old House TV

TOH: Trade School- Exclusive Preview of The Views Inside and Out!

Light green grout is used with glass tiles to give a depth of color to the backsplash. A cable railing system gets installed outside. A gas stove goes in the living room; it will become a focal point at night, when water views are no longer visible. The lighting designer shows how layers of light were used to create distinct spaces.

Soldering for the First Time

Posted by in Home Improvement Tips, on May 19, 2018

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVom-6VROxo

WEB EXCLUSIVE: In a recent episode of Ask This Old House, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey helped landscape designer Jenn Nawada hook up a fridge with an icemaker. While he was there, he offered Jenn a crash course on soldering. Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Time: 1 hour Cost: $50 Skill Level: Moderate Tools List for Soldering:
Measuring tape
Pipe cutter
Blow torch
Bucket Shopping List:
Pipe cleaner
Solder
Flux
Pipes
Fittings
Rags Steps:
1. Shut the water off to the pipes being soldered.
2. Measure and cut the pipes to length using the pipe cutter. Have a bucket ready to catch any water left over in the pipe.
3. Let the pipes dry before soldering or the connection won’t take.
4. Use a pipe cleaner to clean the outside of the pipes and the insides of the fittings.
5. Generously apply flux to the cleaned ends of the pipes and fittings and fit the pieces together.
6. Hold the blow torch on the opposite side of where you plan to apply to solder. Wait a few minutes to allow the pipe to heat up, and then gently touch the pipe with the solder. If it quickly wraps around the entire connection, then it took properly. If it did not, continue to heat the pipe up and try again.
7. Wipe down the excess solder on the pipe with a rag.
8. Turn the water back on. Resources:
All the materials required for soldering – solder, flux, blow torch, pipes, and fittings – are available at home centers and plumbing supply houses. Ask This Old House TV
