Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
The project by the This Old House crew is winding up, despite the torrential rains. The circa 1906 Victorian farmhouse in the lovely Napa Valley wine country has a new look, complete with a paint job. The focus now is on energy-efficient appliances, including a dishwasher, refrigerator, and garbage compactor. There is a meeting with the head of California's energy commission to learn more about energy-saving issues. A visit to a private vineyard, and the hoisting of a new flag to mark completion of the project mark the beginning of the welcome wrap party.
