Joining Copper Plumbing
Bob and carpentry contractor Bob Ryley install the pre-hung front door and visit Shepley Wood Products to see how it was made. Contractor Dean Fraser demonstrates how to apply cedar shingles, and Tom Higham shows how to join copper plumbing for the bathroom lavatory.
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.
