This Old House TV // Season 28 // Episode 02

Weston | House Plan Virtual Tour

Host Kevin O'Connor drives up to find the old house gone, and general contractor Tom Silva finishing the job by demolishing the chimney and foundation with an excavator. The old concrete and brick will be crushed, trucked away, and used as base material for new roads, while the rest of the house will eventually find new life as affordable housing, but for now it's being stored at the ReStore in Springfield, Massachusetts. John Grossman shows Kevin how the non-profit center operates, and how much salvaged material came out of our house. Up at the shop in Walpole, New Hampshire, Kevin meets architect Chris Adams and homeowner Amy Favat to see how she planned her family's dream home, and to take a tour of the new house—via a 3-D software program that allows them to design and "build" the house virtually. Then, work gets underway as Tedd Benson shows Kevin how the main timbers for the house are sawn from massive salvaged Douglas fir derricks from a granite quarry in Vermont, and also some old live oak ship's ribs that will be used for dramatic effect in the dining area.
