The Idea House in New Canaan, CT is where new building products and techniques are tested. Project Foreman Gordan Jacobsen is assembling PVC exterior shutters that are not only historically accurate but also operable. He shows Kevin O'Connor the technique to put the louvers in their slots. Then he glues it up, spray paints it black, and installs a pair on either side of a window.
