Plastering the Walls

Project: Habitat for Humanity, Episode 6, Part 2

Volunteers are still hard at work in Yonkers, and it's time for siding. Bob talks to some volunteers about the SmartSystem installation process, and then takes us to the Louisiana-Pacific facility in Two Harbors, Minnesota where we'll learn more about the materials used. Inside the house, the blitz build is in full force as a team of workers apply the drywall utilizing special pre-finished corners in record time.
