There are several distinctive design features that will change the front of the Arlington Arts & Crafts house. The roof on the front porch has a special shape as do brackets on the side of the house. To create the elaborate cuts required for these features, Tom Silva’s team turned to a special shop that creates them with computerized cutting machines. Norm Abram gets a tour of the shop with owner Peter Murray and sees the brackets and porch rafters in the making.
