Kevin arrives at the job site and sees that the new addition foundations are poured and backfilled.

Inside, not much is happening in the front rooms but the old dining room, kitchen and old addition have all been gutted.

The homeowners want an open floor plan but that means one thing -- beams. Kevin finds Tommy in the kitchen as they figure out how to support the new opening from the dining room to the kitchen.

Meanwhile, the Delfinos have asked their architect's interior designer, Chloe Rideout, to help with design decisions. Kevin stops by a session at Chloe's office as the three of them look at color and tile options for downstairs spaces and the master bathroom.

This Old House launched a nationwide search to find three apprentices for the Newton project. After sifting through a mountain of applications, the three apprentices were selected and today they arrive at the job site. Tommy wants to make sure they're prepared, so he issues them each a new tool belt and schools them on the tools any worker will need.

The first assignment for them is the front porch, which has lots of problems. Tommy shows them how to safely demo the lattice work around the bottom so he can inspect underneath.

Inside, Kevin talks to each of the apprentices to explore their journey into the construction industry. Tommy and Kevin discuss the new apprentices and make predictions for their future success on this Newton job site.
