Good Wood | The Charleston Houses 2018
Coming up on This Old House
Starting at the Charleston single house, Kevin finds homeowner Scott meeting with his architect Bill Huey, who has an idea for a dining room table designed to fit the narrow space in the old kitchen house.
Then he meets diver and carpenter Justin Herrington out on the Edisto River, who surfaces a cypress log that has been submerged at the bottom of the river for decades. They bring the old log to Justin’s shop to cut slabs for the new dining room table.
In Charleston, the AC in HVAC is the most important function. Richard finds the best places to install HVAC equipment at the 175-year-old single house.
Kevin and Bill take an exploratory tour of single houses in downtown Charleston, pointing out the common features.
Homeowner Judith hopes to save the beautiful crepe myrtle tree in her front yard, but there is an invasive tree growing up in the middle of it. Roger finds Bob Longe and his crew trying to eliminate the tree and save the crepe myrtle.
In a climate like Charleston, insects are an issue, especially termites. Tommy inspects the damage at Judith’s house and talks to pest expert Chris Caddell about how to address the problem.
