Neighborhood Redevelopment

Project: Accessible Home, Episode 4, Part 3

Bob helps Arnold (from Crosswinds Enterprises) build temporary safety stairs on the job site. At the same time, insulation work is underway.

Out in the street, trenches are being dug for new water service into each single-family unit, and the inspector is on-site to make sure the job is done right.

Also on-site is Thomas Menino, then Mayor of the City of Boston, who's helping to install the front door of the accessible home on Blue Hill Avenue.
