Cabinetmaker Brian Comeaux demonstrates how he framed the boxes for the new built-ins that are being installed in the living room to match the existing ones in the dining room. The pool crew is out back in their sponge shoes, finishing up the pool with a coat of plaster, before the trucks arrive to fill'er up.
