Can We Cantilever | Brookline Mid-century Modern House
Coming up on This Old House
The final roof section of the house is over the new living room addition. It’s unique because it cantilevers out over a balcony. But as Kevin finds out from Tommy, that means installing the rafters takes more care.
In the kitchen, the main counter is up against a wall of windows and that causes a problem for venting the drain for the sink. Richard shows Kevin how to install a bow vent to send the pipe down through the basement.
Outside, Kevin finds Tommy giving our apprentice Erick a lesson in letting siding breathe.
The HVAC crew has been busy with ductwork and today Richard is helping install an air handler for the bedroom wing.
A flat roof in New England can turn into a wintery mess if ice and snow slide onto a doorway. Kevin finds Tommy installing cleats on the roof over an entrance.
