Arlington Italianate | Arlington Heights
Kevin arrives to find Roger onsite with arborist Matt Foti and a solid plan to let light into the yard with some selective tree pruning. Richard revisits the benefits of using the "super plastic" PEX instead of copper for the water supply lines. Norm gets a brief history lesson on our neighborhood via local historian and neighbor Richard Duffy, who has recently completed museum-quality restorations to parts of his 1872 Stick-style home. Tom shows Kevin how to convert a jamb that once held a door into an elegant cased opening with the help of a dutchman, a filler strip, and a bead detail created with a router to achieve a smart looking reveal.
