Excavating to Install a New Waterline

Project: Bob's Shingle Style Home, Episode 12, Part 1



Bob returns to the Stockbridge, MA landmark home Naumkeag for a tour of the elaborate gardens.  On the third floor, we’re ready for some interior trim with Ryley.  Outside, a trench is dug for the new water service from the city main into the house.

Part 1: Excavating to Install a New Waterline

Bob meets with Dick Hawley of John Hawley Inc. to watch the excavation for the new waterline. They discuss details of the process, as well as the copper pipes that will be used, which were probably not available when the system was last replaced.

Part 2: Touring the Naumkeag Historic House Gardens
Part 3: Hanging Old Doors, Installing New Door Trim, and Outfitting the Windows
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.
