TOH: Trade School- Exclusive Preview of Windows of Opportunity!Posted by plumbingpros in Home Improvement Tips, on November 6, 2017
Host Kevin O’Connor arrives to find the new family addition framed up. Inside, Kevin finds general contractor Tom Silva and a major discovery – a cast iron pipe that was run several years ago straight through two structural beams in the kitchen. The fix is a new footing and lally column in the basement, and new post supports in the kitchen placed to accommodate the new stove vent hood. Master carpenter Norm Abram meets window restoration specialist Alison Hardy at her shop in Peabody, Massachusetts, to see our historic window sash stripped, repaired, re-glazed and repainted. Later at the house, they will be weather stripped and outfitted with new hardware to increase their insulating and mechanical performance. With the structured now fully repaired, Tom and Kevin take down the old wall of the ell, opening up the kitchen to the new family room for the first time.
