Clip Summary

Bob and Chris Vila visit the plastering contractor at the Waterfront Warehouse Rehab project, and get a lesson in plaster mixing. In order to have the plaster set quickly, the workman demonstrates a technique that involves mixing plaster and joint compound together. This cuts the drying time in half in a typical hot and humid New York City summer. Bob and Chris Vila meet Dino Koukoudakis from Dino's Construction who is installing a custom rectangular skylight from Wasco. This four-by-six foot argon-filled, low-e coated skylight comes ready to mount from the factory. Taking a look at the opening from below, Bob and Chris point out how the natural light provided by the skylight opens up the bedroom to natural light, giving the space a larger look and feel.
