The This Old House Hour

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
On a rainy day in Barrington, builder Andy Tiplady shows host Kevin O'Connor how he's replaced the old cracked asphalt with new concrete pavers in the driveway. Master carpenter Norm Abram visits a custom cabinet shop in Smithfield, Rhode Island, to see how they are using high-end cherry veneers for the project to make a kitchen with true character. Back in Barrington, installer Rick Jutras hangs the last of the wall cabinets and scribes the refrigerator panel to fit the space. In the master bathroom, plumber David St. Angelo sets the new soaking tub in a bed of freshly mixed plaster. Painting contractor Al Girard tries out a "full spectrum" paint that relies on other pigments to deepen the colors, rather than the industry standard of black, to achieve more reflective and rich colors. In the second half of the hour, on ASK THIS OLD HOUSE, alternative energy expert Ross Trethewey travels to San Francisco to learn about a new way to finance solar photovoltaic panels and then sees them installed. Afterward, general contractor Tom Silva helps a homeowner frame the walls for a basement remodeling project.
