Arlington Arts & Crafts | Make Way for the Family Room
On this episode of This Old House
Tommy and Kevin replace a 100-year-old wooden beam with a new steel beam to provide support for the new addition. Norm visits local examples of Arts & Crafts style houses with historian Richard Duffy. The old oil tank gets drained and removed by a specialist. Digging for the new foundation begins and the old concrete pieces from the patio and foundation get transported to a recycling center. Tommy shows Kevin what happens to the material once it is there and how it is used for future construction material.
