Carlisle | Enhancing the House With Stone and Paint
General contractor Tom Silva reports that after two days of drilling, the well contractors finally found water—700 feet down. Master carpenter Norm Abram shows host Kevin O'Connor the progress in the future garage and how the space can be heated with up to five zones of radiant heat in the slab. In the barn, Norm finds mason Tony Martin creating a veneer for the fireplace surround out of fieldstone and mortar. At a stone supply yard in Woburn, Massachusetts, Kevin learns how to select granite countertops from granite specialist Susan Tuller and interior designer Alexa Hampton. Paint color specialist Bonnie Krims shows Kevin historical paint color schemes for the project house. For the benefit of the paint job (and his crew), painting contractor Jim Clark sets up shop in the heated basement to paint the fiber cement siding before it goes up.
