Project: Vermont Farmhouse, Episode 4, Part 3

Framing work progresses, as Dan Enright and crew work on the home's hip roof, as well as the truss system over the garage. In the basement, Bob talks to Tim Woods (from Internet Home Alliance) about the special wiring that is being installed to make this farmhouse a "connected" home.

Part 3: Touring NASA's Johnson Space Center
Bob tours NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX, where he explores the mock-up of an international space station. Mike Hawes, the Deputy Associate Administrator at the Johnson Center, remarks that the space station is "the ultimate smart house."

Dr. Jeff Wisoff, a former astronaut, guides Bob around the high-fidelity mock-up, which closely resembles the actual space station.
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.
