Stucco Walls

Project: Greenhouse, Episode 7, Part 2



Landscape designer Ruth Foster drops by the site to help revamp the tired, winter-beaten yard around the greenhouse, and to plant a new tree for shade. Inside, the mason is adding stucco to the walls and laying a bluestone floor, which will help with heat storage.

Part 2: Stucco Walls
Bob meets with John Clancy who is applying "California" stucco inside the greenhouse. A tint is applied to the mix to match the interior, and a latex bonding material helps keep the stucco adhere to the walls.
Part 3: Installing a Bluestone Floor
Bob Vila heads to Cape Cod in the dead of winter to watch over the construction of a custom, high-tech greenhouse. The design and construction of a new addition to the front of an existing house afforded the creation of this conservatory and of a new front entry pavilion that features a mahogany pergola supported by limestone columns.
