In episode 3 of the Idea House Build: Cottage on the Cape series, the window and door trim is preassembled in a shop, then shipped to the Idea House site. A large casement window gets installed, then trimmed with the preassembled unit. Meanwhile, the roof system goes down, one layer at a time.

Chris meets Matt at the Cape Associates millwork shop to see the process for assembling the Lifespan window and door trim, then takes a deep dive into the strength and efficiency of the pocket hole joinery system.

Back on site, he and project manager Josh Piper install a large Sierra Pacific window, and then mount the pre-assembled trim unit. Up on the roof, GAF’s ice barrier system, underlayment, and American Harvest shingles are installed. Seamus of Cazeault Roofing explains why these shingles were the best choice for unpredictable Cape Cod weather, and the specific installation process that promises the best aesthetic result.
