Bathroom With Zones: After

The new second-floor bath serves the two new bedrooms, leaving the old bath to the youngest girl and guests. A door between the double-sink vanity and the shower/toilet area, which has its own sink, makes it easier for two to share the space.

Bathroom cabinetry: Woodpro
Bath fan: Panasonic

This Old House -Episode #3422
Host Kevin O'Connor arrives to find Landscape Contractor Roger Cook and sod grower Pat Hogan installing a new variety of turf type tall fescue that needs less water and fertilizer than other varieties. Kevin meets plumbing contractor Kevin Bilo and plumbing inspector Duke LaConte to see what he looks for at the final plumbing inspection. Kevin sees how interior designer Robin Gannon came up with the design for the great room entertainment center, and then meets Matt Allen to see how he's turning her design into reality. Kevin meets master electrician Allen Gallant and wiring inspector Alix Berube to see what he looks for at the final electrical inspection. Later, Kevin meets back up with Matt Allen to see the progress on the piece and the sliding barn door hardware he is using to hang the salvaged interior doors that will conceal the TV. In the basement, Heating and Plumbing Expert Richard Trethewey shows Kevin the finished mechanical room and closes the loop on the final heating and cooling decisions.
