Painting With Low-VOC Paint

Project: Habitat for Humanity, Episode 8, Part 1

Painting is underway. Tyghe O'Donnell is applying low-VOC paint in one of the bedrooms, while, outside, volunteers are using a new paint that's specially formulated for colder temperatures. In McCleary, WA, Bob takes a tour of the Simpson Door plant, while, back in Yonkers, carpenter Bob Ryley installs a door with the help of Steve Parks. Finally, Ren Anderson shows Bob a computerized test of the home's insulation.
