Building the Deck Frame
Bob and Rick Kleiner (from Southern Forest Products Association) discuss the pressure-treated pine decking material. Contractor Tim Berky and his crew construct the supports and beams, then toe-nail the joists before setting the hangers. Inside, the homeowner and Trikeenan's Steve Powers show Bob the artisanal tiles selected for the new bathroom. Tile setter David Cloutman puts down the Sharkskin field tiles, accent tiles, and pencil tiles to achieve the homeowner's design.

- Part 2: Building the Deck Frame
- General contractor Tim Berky and his crew remove existing cladding in order to fit the ledger board for the deck tight against the house, with an ice and water barrier to protect against water penetration.
- Part 3: Installing Artisanal Tile
Bob Vila undertakes the partial remodel of a historic Victorian home in Rowley, MA. The house is a classic New England gem with many partitioned rooms, plus the added appeal of a large yard with preserved wetlands beyond. From permits and approvals to the addition of a mudroom and deck, this project focuses on family space.

Bob is in Rowley, MA for the partial remodeling of a Queen Anne Victorian in the town's historic district. Homeowner David Masher and architect Greg Colling explain how the addition will follow the linear plan of the home, and will ultimately lead onto a new deck, regraded back yard, and landscaped side yard. Outside, contractor Tim Berky gets approval to dig and starts preparing the addition's footings.
Bob and contractor Tim Berky review the newly poured foundation that's been pointed in order to blend with the existing Victorian foundation. The new 5' x 16' mudroom addition is framed and topped with a hip roof that will be sheathed in copper. Also, Berky and his crew install new Pella French doors. These solid-wood framed, double-paned, argon-filled, low-e glass doors let in light, retain warmth, prevent heat gain, and have a triple-latch system for added security.
The Queen Anne Victorian addition is ready for clapboard siding to match the existing façade and trim. Inside, the demolition is complete, the chimney stack has been removed, and a custom steel structural support has been placed where the load-bearing dining-room wall once stood. Insulation specialists explain, and begin to install, the expanding foam, closed-cell insulation. Outside, contractor Tim Berky completes a custom backerboard and transitional bed molding to match the original 1890s molding.
