Kevin recaps how the roofers applied new architectural shingles to tie the old house in with the addition. Tom shows Kevin the progress on the new back deck. Kevin finds Richard and plumbing contractor Kevin Bilo fighting to keep the P-trap from the new bathtub on the second floor from interfering with the decorative ceiling of the new kitchen.

At the Lexington project, Kevin finds the front gable wall of the second floor up and the roof framing underway. In Lexington's historic district, architect Frank Shirley shows Norm how people have been using front porches to lend character and charm to Colonial style homes for hundreds of years. Back at the house, Tom shows Kevin the framing of the new farmer's porch. Inside, Kevin sees how the homeowners are getting by without a kitchen, which has been gutted. Later, Tom presents a solution to the ceiling height challenge in the old part of the kitchen.

Lexington Project 2015/Footings & Framing (Episode #3410H)

KQED Life: Thu, Mar 12, 2015 -- 1:00 PM

The Lexington homeowners want to stay in the house during the renovation, so Tom shows Kevin how he's going to demo in phases, keeping the kitchen intact for as long as possible. Today, they'll tackle exterior demo only, starting with the back porch. Norm explains the framing of the first floor platform. Roger gets underway with the layout and excavation for the new footings for the first floor addition. The new prefab footings are unloaded into the backyard, set, leveled and plumbed. Kevin explains the building permit process and the role of the building commissioner, Fred Lonardo, as he comes in to make his first inspection.

Lexington Project 2015/Colonial Roots (Episode #3409H)

KQED Life: Thu, Mar 5, 2015 -- 1:00 PM

TOH kicks off the second project of the 35th Anniversary Season: an addition to a 1966 Colonial in historic Lexington, Massachusetts. Homeowners Jeremy and Jody Kieval would like a makeover that includes more sunlight and a new farmer's porch. Inside, the overflowing playroom needs to be relocated. Jeremy wants his dream kitchen to become the new heart of the home, so the old kitchen will be gutted and redesigned. A new addition will include a mudroom and access to the garage. The upstairs plan includes two more bedrooms, a laundry room and a sitting area over the garage. Roger shows Kevin how the small stream in the backyard will be protected during construction.
