The show opens with Kevin at the busy Jamestown job site where the yard has been ripped up from the heavy machinery. In just a couple short weeks the grass will go in but luckily Roger has a good solution. Roger joins Jenn and Kevin at a nearby sod farm where hundreds of acres of environmentally friendly grass is grown. Back at the house, the new HVAC equipment is on site. Behind the barn Richard shows the outdoor heat recovery unit, which can simultaneously heat and cool the home. Upstairs in the living room, Jeff and his fireplace installer move a direct vent high efficiency fireplace into the framed chase. A television will eventually be mounted above the fireplace, so there’s a heat release system that will vent inside of the chase to keep the hot air away from the TV. The wood framed porch gets screened in the old fashion way. Tommy works with Jeff to staple black fiberglass screens to a wooden piece that slides into an opening created by the framing. Back outside, Richard watches as high- pressured water is pumped into the newly dug well to create a better water flow. Since water usage is often restricted in Jamestown, the water that’s accessible by this well will be pumped to a tank to be used in the summer for irrigation.
