Carlisle | Foundation Installation Begins
Host Kevin O'Connor visits Great Brook Farm State Park, a 1,000-acre park and the last working dairy farm in Carlisle, Massachusetts. General contractor Tom Silva shows Kevin how he created a custom crushed stone footing for the foundation using a "stone slinger"—a high-speed conveyor that projects stone as far as 75 feet. Master carpenter Norm Abram oversees the installation of a new insulated foundation system that's pre-cast in a factory and then trucked to the job site. Certified arborist Matt Foti shows Kevin and landscape contractor Roger Cook how to relocate the septic tank without harming an old catalpa tree that might be worth saving.
