Garage Door Installation

Project: Victorian Restoration, Episode 8, Part 4

Bob talks with Bill Reid (from US Gypsum) about the differences between blue board and the drywall. In the backyard, Bob meets with Fred Goode (from BrattleWorks) to talk about the special landscape fencing being put in. (Then they take a tour of the nearby factory to see how the fencing is made). Finally, a new Clopay garage door is installed.

Part 4: Garage Door Installation
The new six-panel garage door (made of hemlock) undergoes installation. Windows on the top part of the door not only admit light into the garage, but also mimic the look of the original barn doors.
Located just five miles from downtown Boston, Bob's scouts discovered a Victorian-era house in a neighborhood of family homes on tree-lined streets that was past due for a full-scale renovation.

The home's new owners, a work-at-home family, have set goals to modernize the home's floor plan, update the building's mechanical and electrical systems, and add home office and work spaces for two busy professionals.
