In this episode:

In Fairfield County, Chris checks in on the progress that’s been made at the Farmhouse. He tours the outside of the house with Jerry to see what’s been done, and Jerry explains his vision for what’s to come.

At the front of the house, a large sliding door is being installed to maximize the great room’s view of the Long Island Sound. Chris helps Eddy install the door, and then moves up to the roof to see the progress there. There are two roofing materials being installed – asphalt shingles on the main part of the house, and a metal roof above the barn portion.

Chris watches the roofing panels get crimped on site and installed, completing the metal side of the roof.
