Part 1: Building a Hip Roof
Part 2: Structured Wiring Options
Bob and Tim Woods (of Internet Home Alliance) discuss the basics of structured wiring and connectivity in the basement of the Quechee house.

The IHA is an association of companies committed to bringing the "internet lifestyle" to consumers. Utilizing a DirecWay satellite dish from Hughes Networking systems to overcome the lack of high speed data transmission in Quechee's remote location, the homeowners will enjoy two-way satellite communications providing access for online computers and audiovisual equipment in every room.

Tim explains the basics of structured wiring and shows Bob the Home Director's integration plan.

Part 4: Garage Truss Construction
The wooded New England setting, with quaint towns and covered bridges, provides the perfect backdrop for building a traditional Vermont-style farmhouse.

Bob works with the Quechee Lakes Development Company to build a residence that hearkens back to the past yet satisfies the needs of a family in the new millennium.
