In this episode:

Host Kevin O’Connor finds General Contractor Tom Silva working with our new apprentices, Bobbi and Yeren, on the front door of the project. They are adjusting the threshold and taking an inch off the door so it opens and closes properly.

Our Generation Next initiative continues this season as we partner with YouthBuild, a nationwide organization that champions opportunities for youths who aspire to improve their lives and communities but lack skills and resources. Kevin meets the CEO John Valverde and gets to know our latest apprentices.

After the fire, not much was left of the kitchens on the second and third floors. Now, it’s back to the drawing board to find new cabinets and countertops: this time at a showroom in Norwood.

There are three apartments in the building, so that means three HVAC systems. To help solve the puzzle, Plumbing and Heating Expert Richard Trethewey works with HVAC Expert James Bouchard to install an air handling system.
