This Old House - Episode #3305
Plumbing and Heating Expert Richard Trethewey checks out the sand shoaling that now obstructs the waterways behind the barrier island, and how contractors like Buddy Young's company, brought in from Texas by the NJ DEP, are dredging the bay back to its pre-Sandy levels, cleaning the sand, and using it to replace the dune on the beach. In Bay Head, general contractor Kevin D'Anuncia?ao is installing a hurricane-resistant window package and structural hardware at every juncture to help the house stand up to high winds and water. In Point. Pleasant, Carlos and Host Kevin O'Connor find plumber Ron Eith repairing the damage and running new gas and sewer lines. Framing is underway, and interior designer Tracy Pearce and architect Dan Lynch are helping create a space that will be a worthy payoff for all of the anxiety, uncertainty and expense the family has had to deal with since Sandy. Richard meets up with builder Anthony Zarrilli to hail the arrival of the two truck-drawn modules that will marry together to form Rita's new house. Rita joins Richard to admire the almost instant progress and get a dramatic first look inside. Kevin meets nationally syndicated radio show host and Jersey Shore native Tom Kraeutler too see one of the most historic and unique spots on the Jersey Shore ? the Methodist campground at Ocean Grove.
