THIS OLD HOUSE

Barrington: Wall Dressing

  • Aired: 03/15/2012
  • 23:43
  • Expires: 10/04/2012
  • Rating: TV-G
A retractable awning gets installed. New soapstone countertops get sealed with wax, not oil, for a more durable finish. Andy dresses up the half-walls with oak caps and a scotia molding. The light fixtures are being made by New England blacksmiths. Floor warming goes in the master bath. Richard tells us why the ERV unit is possibly the most important piece of mechanical equipment in the house.
