Beginning the Landscaping
Project: Bob's Shingle Style Home, Episode 13, Part 1
Work begins on the landscape around the house; Bob assesses the limited space with a landscape architect. An arborist is on site to start trimming the hemlocks away from the house. Inside, Bob explains the lighting and mechanical fixtures going into the walls, and Ryley installs a pocket door in the kitchen. An historical paint expert is on site to do some archaeology and help pinpoint the right colors for the house's exterior.
- Part 1: Beginning the Landscaping
Bob meets with landscape architects Rick and Nancy Lamb to assess the back yard and determine which trees to remove. One of the considerations of an urban area is how to achieve privacy without blocking the neighbors' light. Arborist Charley Cummings trims some hemlock trees and Bob climbs up to interview him.
