Arlington Arts & Crafts | One Brick at a Time
Coming up on this episode of This Old House
Now that the firebox is installed, it’s time to start the new chimney for the addition. Mark McCullough, expert mason on the project, gets an apprentice for the day—a homeowner. Then he travels to Bridgewater, MA to visit a brick-making factory and gets a tour from the 4th generation owner, Lincoln Andrews. Mark watches how the bricks are mixed, formed, cut, and baked at the 100-year-old factory that provides bricks throughout New England. After several years with a tiny kitchen, Emily and Nick are excited to design the space of their dreams. Kevin meets them at a cabinet shop in the quaint New England city of Bath, Maine, where kitchen designer Heather Krausse reveals her ideas for their project. Back at the house, Kevin finds Tommy up on the roof changing the pitch of the two back dormers to match the pitch of the new gable created by the addition.
