Charlestown Project 2014/Wood and Water (#3404H) Duration: 25:46 STEREO TVG

Richard stops by the Charlestown Navy Yard to see a special guest arrive - the last wooden whaling ship in the world, the Charles W. Morgan, built c.1840. Tom shows Norm the progress on the approved dormer and how he's waterproofing its low slope roof. Inside, insulation is in and wallboard is going up. Out back, to tie in the new work with the old house, mason Mark McCullough installs a reclaimed brick veneer on the new kitchen bump out. Kevin checks on the kitchen design details, and Norm and Tom replace the fake shutters with operable shutters made of durable fiberglass and PVC.

Charlestown Project 2014/Gardens & Greek Revival Style (#3405H) Duration: 25:46 STEREO TVG

Roger visits the Sullivan Square Community Garden, while Richard works with fireplace expert John Sullivan to rough in the ductwork for the new direct vent gas fireplace units. With plaster work and flooring completed, Norm and Tom add some subtle Greek Revival details to the interior window trim package. For inspiration for her own urban garden, Roger takes homeowner Angela Daigle to see some hidden gardens of Beacon Hill. Painting contractor Mauro Henrique paints the exterior window trim on the rowhouse and puts up samples of a few bold color choices for the new front door.

Lexington Project 2015/Colonial Roots (#3409H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

THIS OLD HOUSE 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.

Lexington Project 2015/Footings & Framing (#3410H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

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.
