In this episode:

Original leaded diamond glass windows greet people at our project’s front door. But it needs some repairs. Kevin O’Connor finds window expert Cathryn Blackwell addressing the problem.

Outside, our homeowners want a colorful buffer between their woodland property and the driveway. Jenn Nawada and Fred are planting a bed of perennials that provide color throughout the growing season.

Our homeowners Molly and John are a fun couple, and their designer Shelby wants their energy to be present in the interior décor. Today Molly and Shelby are making design decisions that give a gentle nod in the modern direction, without being too uncomfortable or fussy.

Upstairs, the elaborate trim around the landing windows broke during demo. Tom Silva and Mattie Forde, our finish carpenter, are working on replacement pieces.
