Barrington Project, Part 10 of 10 (Episode #3126H)

KQED Life: Sat, Oct 6, 2012 -- 9:30 AM

As the project winds down in Barrington, Rhode Island, master carpenter Norm Abram and host Kevin O'Connor congratulate builder Andy Tiplady on a job well done, while plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey shows homeowner Geoff Allen an advanced programmable thermostat with a 7" LCD screen. Window treatment specialist Ian Gibbs installs solar shades on the first floor, which will give some privacy and UV protection, while still allowing in light and views. Upstairs, closet designer Erin Hardy shows Kevin how she divided up the shared master closet to accommodate both "his and hers" spaces. Interior designer Lisa Newman Paratore shows off the final decor choices - a daughter's suite that employs timeless pieces and colors that allow the accessories to change as tastes change with age. The guest room will do double-duty as an "away" space for adults, while the master suite is all about luxury and making the most of the ocean views. Downstairs, the homeowners' eclectic art and casual furniture groupings make for a comfortable home filled with character. Homeowner Michelle Forcier settles in to the finished kitchen as a group arrives to celebrate the conclusion of another great THIS OLD HOUSE project.
