Installing Recessed Lighting
Project: Accessible Home, Episode 8, Part 1
After installing a recessed lighting fixture in the Roxbury accessible home, Bob takes a tour of the Lightolier plant in Fall River, MA, where the fixtures are made. Back on site, a tankless water heater is installed. The heater, which is about the size of a suitcase, promises to save the homeowner hundreds in heating bills.
