The This Old House Hour
With the interior opened up, master carpenter Norm Abram shows host Kevin O'Connor the bones of the building. On the first floor, general contractor Tom Silva relocates a load-bearing partition wall and takes the dip out of the floor. Out front, Kevin and homeowner Sally learn about the appropriate colors for the outside of her Victorian-era house. Later, Sally takes Kevin to a nearby shop to see the style she's after for the interior of the house. In the second half of the hour, on ASK THIS OLD HOUSE, Tom builds a custom fireplace mantel for a homeowner. Then, landscape contractor Roger Cook shares some tips about garden edging. Afterward, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey helps a homeowner repair a leaking kitchen faucet.
