This Old House - Episode #3223
Wooden boatbuilding put Essex on the map. Master Carpenter Norm Abram meets shipwright and designer Captain Harold Burnham to see how he's keeping the tradition alive, one ship at a time. Back at our project, Host Kevin O'Connor helps General Contractor Tom Silva with some "shipbuilding" of his own, putting up 8-inch pine shiplap barn boards on the walls at the entry. As winter closes in, Kevin meets Landscape Contractor Roger Cook and landscape architect Kellie Connelly to see the finished patio and plantings for the first time. Walks, courtyard and patio all function together to create access that will be manageable for anyone. In nearby Winchester, Kevin meets architect Sally DeGan to see how she added a few basic accommodations to make Dan Wegner's house livable for him as he navigates the changes that come with ALS. Back at our house, Kevin finds interior designer Keith Musinski laying out the hearth tiles, salvaged from the original house, for the fireplace. Then, Kevin lends a hand as Tom builds and installs the mantel from a 2-inchpiece of reclaimed oak.

Ladder Safety
Tom and Kevin demonstrate how to use all types of ladders safely.

Where to find it?
Tom and Kevin demonstrated step, extension, and articulating ladders. These are available at hardware stores and home centers.
For more information about ladder safety, including video training guides, please visit the American Ladder Institute.

Anti-Scald Shower Valve
Richard replaces a three-handle shower valve with a single-handle pressure-balanced anti-scald valve.

Where to find it?
Single-handle pressure-balanced shower valves are produced by many different manufacturers. Retrofit trim packages are often available to allow a single-handle valve to replace an older three-handle fixture.

Richard installed the S-96-1 Temptrol shower valve with a CC Conversion Cover Plate by Symmons.
