Episode Info

In the next-to-last episode of the Winchester, Mass., project, homeowner Kim Whittemore tries out the kitchen appliances with host Steve Thomas, who also inspects the closets and a five-arm chandelier. Meanwhile, Norm Abram inspects the outside fencing, which was made to resemble the original 1920s fencing; and contractor Tom Silva and carpenter Jason Wood line the walls with built-in bookshelves, made from MDF and a poplar laminate. On "Ask This Old House": Plumbing-heating expert Richard Trethewey makes a "Housecall" to install an automatic water-shutoff valve on a washer-dryer. Trethewey also discusses plumbing torches, and Silva shows how to prepare drywall joints.
