Pine Porch Ceiling
Project: Ranch Expansion, Episode 18, Part 1
The farmer's porch ceiling is assembled with V-groove pine, and the hardwood flooring from the kitchen is recycled in the living room. Bob visits an exciting new kind of urban renewal project-- a grassroots development corporation, Nuestra Comunidad, which is converting an old abandoned building into single-occupancy housing for low-income and homeless people.
