Pressure Washing the House, Prepping for Painting, and Beginning Kitchen Cabinet Installation

Project: Bob's Shingle Style Home, Episode 17, Part 1



With the decision made on what color to paint the house, bob takes a look at the prep involved on the exterior.  Danny’s restoring some old windows using springloaded balances.  We take a trip to New Holland, Pennsylvania, to the Heritage cabinet factory, then back at the site, Bob’s beautiful new cabinets are installed in the kitchen.

Part 1: Pressure Washing the House, Prepping for Painting, and Beginning Kitchen Cabinet Installation
Bob looks at a large exterior paint color sample on his home in Cambridge, MA, and watches the paint crew pressure wash the house. Bob describes the tools involved in prepping a surface for new paint. Then Bob visits the kitchen, where Todd Allen and Jim Shiels install the first of the Heritage cabinets, explaining how they deal with the idiosyncrasies of a 100-year-old house.
Part 2: Touring a Custom Cabinetry Factory and Reviewing Plans for the Kitchen
Part 3: Restoring Old Double-Hung Windows using Spring-Loaded Balances
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.
