The existing basement has a very low ceiling. The homeowners want to turn the area into more usable space, so Mark McCullough takes a jackhammer to the concrete floor so he can dig it out and create more headroom. Outside, the foundation has been poured and framing has begun. Norm teaches Erick and Carly how to lay the sill. Our Generation Next program highlights a program at Ft. Stewart in Georgia that is turning grunts into soldiers of the building trades. The town of Brookline requires our builder to inspect the old sewer line from the inside. Richard works with a plumbing company in the basement with a tool designed to video tape the pipe from the house to the street. The architect for our project has refreshed the modern box design of the exterior, made popular in the 50s. Now our homeowners are focused on the interior space where they want to ramp up that modern feel. Kevin finds Sunil meeting with interior designers who are starting the process.
