The backyard of the Dorchester 3 Decker is quite large. Homeowner Carol and Jenn Nawada came up with a plan that lets Carol and her family enjoy it. Today other members of our This Old House team are pitching in to build a patio and sitting wall.
Half the electrical system in the house was damaged in the fire. Since it’s hard to tell what’s good and what’s bad, all of it will be replaced. Kevin O’Connor finds Heath Eastman rewiring an intact plaster ceiling.
Fire damaged the doors leading to the back porch on each floor. Tom and Charlie Silva take out the old doors and install a fire door with a metal jamb.
Bathrooms are ready for new plumbing fixtures. Richard Trethewey explains how new fiberglass tubs are going in.
Windows were replaced recently on the house but because of the fire we must do many of them again. Tom and Kevin install new double hung windows on the first floor after pulling out the old sash and replacement jamb.
