Bob visits Barbara Gooddale in her authentic antique Cape Cod house to get a feel for the style and practicality of this design. Back at the project house, the crew gets busy framing, raising, and spring-bracing the walls.
Part 1: Framing the Walls
Bob works with the crew on framing the walls of the Cape Cod house.
Bob Vila's first project for "Home Again" is a Cape Cod-style home in Marstons Mills, MA. Bob takes the viewer through all the steps of building a house from scratch: from architect’s plans and foundation digging to framing, cedar shingling, installing a heating system, and using artist’s paint techniques on the interior.
