Carpenter Bob Ryley and George (from Crosswinds Enterprises) build a railing system of pressure-treated lumber and integrate it with the front porch columns.
Bob takes a tour of some of the grand old houses left over from Roxbury's heyday at the turn of the century. After a period of serious urban blight, this once-grand Boston community is making a dramatic comeback.
Back at the site, a few of the housing units have already been plastered, and some windows have been given custom sills.
This project follows an urban renewal story, involving grass-roots activism and affordable housing. Bob Vila reports on nine newly built three-bedroom homes, including one with accessibility for people with disabilities.
