Cambridge | Creating a Dramatic Entryway
Host Kevin O'Connor and plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey stop in at Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage, a neighborhood institution. Master carpenter Norm Abram explains the decision to use a formerly controversial exterior cladding system known as an exterior insulated finishing system, or EIFS. Installer Dan Rourke shows Norm how product manufacturers have adapted over the last decade to solve problems of water infiltration. In the library, Kevin finds general contractor Tom Silva chimney specialist Mark Schaub working with the new gas fireplace unit to establish the location of the vent pipe in the new "chimney."
