The This Old House Hour

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
As the Bedford project wraps up, landscape contractor Roger Cook and landscape designer Jenn Nawada Evans install both the new and old plant material, adjusted at the nursery for the change in the color of the house. In the kitchen, tile contractor Mark Ferrante installs the ceramic backsplash tile with a crackle finish that requires sealing three times to prevent seepage and staining through the cracks. In the dining room, interior designer Dee Elms is on hand as wallpaper hanger Mike Bradshaw starts installing the new hand-woven paper from Japan. The front yard design is complete with the arrival of sod, and Roger installs the reproduction boot scraper in the granite step by the front door while general contractor Tom Silva adds the doorknocker. As furniture is delivered, host Kevin O'Connor meets kitchen designer Kathy Marshall and homeowner Becky Titlow to see the finished kitchen and the appliances and fixtures they've chosen. Homeowner Joe Titlow shows master carpenter Norm how he's managed to get a good workshop space in the garage, despite budget constraints. Then, Dee reveals the design choices they've made in oldest part of the house - brightening up the parlor and transforming the dining room with color and texture. In the new addition, Dee's design partner, Andrew Terrat, gives Kevin a grand tour of the new spaces, including the new entry, mudroom, powder room, kitchen and dramatic new family room. The entire crew of THIS OLD HOUSE gathers for a party to wish the Titlows well in their "new" old house. In the second half of the hour, on ASK THIS OLD HOUSE, Kevin works with painter Mauro Henrique to stain a cedar fence. Then, Tom helps a homeowner install window boxes and Roger helps plant them.
