Part 2: Brick Chimney Repair
Part 3: Installing a Marvin Palladian Window
Michael Roche from Marvin Windows joins Bob in examining the house's existing windows and determining which to keep or replace. A new Palladian window will create a great look for the family room. This style of window has a round arched top with a flanking flat-top window on each side. Carpenters Bob Ryley and Danny Ruffini install the new window. Architect Gregory Rochlin explains how the space has been reinforced to handle the load.
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.
