Looking Behind the Walls and Installing a Pocket Door
Project: Bob's Shingle Style Home, Episode 13, Part 2
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
- Part 2: Looking Behind the Walls and Installing a Pocket Door
- Before putting on the blue board, Bob looks at what goes behind the walls: wiring, light fixtures, heat ducts, water lines, and a pocket door frame. He and architect Gregory Rochlin discuss the recessed lighting and modern-day appliances that will bring the house into the 21st century. A pocket door will close off the bath from the dressing area, and Bob helps carpenter Bob Ryley with the installation.
