Kevin finds him in the basement where he is working with a new panel he hopes will make installations easier. Tommy explains how to keep cedar shingles from rotting from the underside out. He shows how to space and nail in the starter course and following rows on either side. The concrete slab and foundation walls of the old basement had no insulation. Kevin finds Jeff as he fixes the problems at both areas. Now is the time to prep the future cabinet sites before drywall is installed. Tommy shows apprentice Mary how he likes to use 2 by stock for blocking behind cabinet walls. The house will have no south facing roof area and that’s a problem because solar panels are essential to the homeowners’ net zero goal. To solve that problem Donald has decided to build a barn with a large south facing roof. Kevin meets Paul Baker, who tells him about the post and beam barn kit. It has been precut at a facility in Connecticut, delivered to the site in sections, and will be raised today. Donald is also there to help.
