Kevin finds Joe helping Norm install an old door in the hall for the new master bedroom suite. Homeowners Joe and Liz hope to save as much as they can from the old house and like the thought of reusing the original doors where possible.

To make room for the driveway, the back corner of the lot needs to be leveled. That requires a retaining wall. Kevin finds Roger getting ready to install an instant stone wall that was built offsite.

Kevin visits a career day in Massachusetts where building contractors meet students from vocational high schools and pitch their industry as a career path. Kevin tours the various booths representing carpentry, plumbing, electricians and HVAC. Our demo expert talks about opportunities in the remodeling industry.

Following the progress at the Idea House in Rhode Island, Kevin finds Jeff Sweenor and his crew building twin built-in beds for a third-floor kids’ bedroom.

The Newton project also has built-ins and some might be as old as the house. Kevin finds Tommy and finish carpenter Mattie Forde reinstalling a corner cabinet in the dining room that was moved out for construction.
