Ask This Old House Was In Northeast Ohio

David: The Shaker Heights shoot ? at the home of Erin and Jeff Brown in September ? was part of the show's two-day visit to Northeast Ohio. Contracting expert Silva, along with "Ask This Old House" producer and former Willoughby resident Health Racela, spoke to an audience at the Idea Center in Playhouse Square, and installed landscape lighting at a home in Brecksville for another segment during their visit.

The air date for the Brecksville segment has not been set, according to a spokeswoman for the show.

On "Ask This Old House," host Kevin O'Connor, Silva and other experts tackle everyday home improvement and repair questions.

The Shaker Heights project involved replacing the existing trim around a dining room window with wood trim that matched the rest of the house. Erin and Jeff Brown, who grew up in Alliance and Hudson, respectively, have lived in their 1928 four-bedroom home for about six years.

Silva and his crew finished the job in about eight hours, Erin Brown said in a recent email.

"We are very pleased; it's exactly what we wanted," she said. "It adds a richness and warmth to the room, and it hides the rough edge of plaster that existed before."

The couple doesn't feel as if they have the tools or experience to do this task again on their own, but they do plan to trim around additional windows with a friend's help.

"Tom shared a lot of helpful information with us," Erin Brown said.
