Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
The job site is busy at this stage of the renovation by the This Old House crew of a 1906 Victorian farmhouse in the Napa Valley. Extra work had to be done to save the old front porch, attacked as it was by the unseen enemy of termites. The roof had to be reinforced with purlins and braces, and the chimney torn down. Lighting installation and cabinetry work make much progress. A walk through the mustard plants in the vineyard provides some respite from all the activity.
