Renovation on the 1902 house is done, and the homeowners are ready to move in, but first, the crew and homeowners participate in the town’s annual bed race. After, they meet at the house for a tour.
A change in season from Spring to Summer is the perfect time for landscaping. Jenn Nawada meets with homeowners Palen and Melissa to add curb appeal to their yard. Kevin O’Connor helps Charlie Silva and Tom Silva with building a custom desk using off-the-shelf material. Heath installs an electric vehicle charger. Mauro Henrique gives the secret to achieving a high gloss finish on front doors.
Watch as shingles are installed on a small roof valley. The homeowners make design selections, and exterior windows are trimmed with a prefabricated trim system. Then, the railing on the original staircase is raised.
Work is underway for the new three-story bump out, the interior is demolished, and a new wider staircase is built. A retaining wall is made, and the town wastewater treatment facility is toured.
The main power is disconnected at the Newburyport house, and temporary power is run before the demo begins. Asbestos abatement is performed, and the back bump-out is removed. Then, a carpenter talks about what it’s like working with Parkinson’s disease.
The crew is back in Massachusetts to start a new project—a modest 1902 Victorian in the town of Newburyport. They meet the homeowners, tour the project, and discuss the possible challenges.
