Rough Plumbing | The Charleston Houses 2018
Coming up on This Old House
Kevin is at the back of the second Charleston project house in the Elliotborough neighborhood, looking at the framing progress. Then he finds Richard inside by the front entrance.
Today the plumber, Mike Dolinger, and Richard work on solving the problem of plumbing a 19th-century building.
It’s design time for Judith and Julia as they figure out how their kitchen should look. Kevin finds them in a Charleston kitchen center starting the process with design consultant Niki Komorek.
The two-story porch at the front of the house has seen better days. General contractor Lindsey Nevin and his team tackle the structure to see what is still good and what needs to be replaced.
On the second floor of the old kitchen in the Single House project, Kevin finds carpenter Ismael Medina restoring and laying the original heart pine flooring.
Charleston is a city of beautiful iron gates, and the owners of the Single House want to upgrade theirs. Tommy visits the American College of the Building Arts where the ironwork class is involved in creating a gate for the project.
Newly exposed brick walls bring challenges for electricity. Tommy catches up with builder Mark to determine how he’ll snake wires when there’s nowhere to hide them.
