Touring a Georgia-Pacific Lumber Mill

Project: Bob's Shingle Style Home, Episode 5, Part 2



In the basement, groundwork is being laid for a useful finished space. To save headroom, plumbing waste pipes have been laid in trenches in the existing floor and a new concrete slab is poured over it. Ryley and crew frame a new dormer for the family room. Bob visits a Georgia-Pacific sawmill in Georgia.

Part 1: Pumping Concrete to Make a Basement Floor
Part 2: Touring a Georgia-Pacific Lumber Mill
Bob tours a Georgia-Pacific lumber mill with Randi Bonanni, who outlines the harvesting and mill processes and discusses safety measures and quality control. This Sterling, GA, factory makes dimensional lumber.
Part 3: Adding a Third-Floor Dormer to the Roof
This project centers around the remodel of Bob Vila's own gracious Shingle Style home in Cambridge, MA. It's a house with a lot of history and beautiful architectural details, many of which were obliterated in remodels of the 50s and the 70s. On the centennial of the house's construction, Bob gets together the best talents in the business to recreate and renew it to its former glory, making some important modifications along the way that will transform this into a dream house for today.
