This Old House And Ask This Old House Are On Tonight

David: This Old House - Episode #3126
As the project winds down in Barrington, Rhode Island, master carpenter Norm Abram and host Kevin O'Connor congratulate builder Andy Tiplady on a job well done, while plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey shows homeowner Geoff Allen an advanced programmable thermostat with a 7" LCD screen. Window treatment specialist Ian Gibbs installs solar shades on the first floor, which will give some privacy and UV protection, while still allowing in light and views. Upstairs, closet designer Erin Hardy shows Kevin how she divided up the shared master closet to accommodate both ?his and hers' spaces. Interior designer Lisa Newman Paratore shows off the final decor choices?a daughter's suite that employs timeless pieces and colors that allow the accessories to change as tastes change with age. The guest room will do double-duty as an "away" space for adults, while the master suite is all about luxury and making the most of the ocean views. Downstairs, the homeowners' eclectic art and casual furniture groupings make for a comfortable home filled with character. Homeowner Michelle Forcier settles in to the finished kitchen as a group arrives to celebrate the conclusion of another great This Old House project.

Ask This Old House - Episode #1026
Landscape contractor Roger Cook and host Kevin O'Connor refinish several worn-out items using spray paint. Then, general contractor Tom Silva removes wall-to-wall carpet and installs a pre-finished wood floor. And in the loft, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey shows Kevin some new household devices that can be operated "hands-free."


Using Spray Paint
Roger and Kevin select the proper spray paint to restore plastic and metal items. There's a primer for plastic, a primer for rusty metal, a high-heat spray paint for a gas grill, and lots of color choices.

Where to find it?
Roger and Kevin purchased their spray paint at The Home Depot

All of the spray primers and paints were manufactured by Rust-Oleum

Installing a Prefinished Floor
Tom Silva removes wall-to-wall carpet and installs a pre-finished wood floor. Tom shows how to work around the baseboard and how to properly nail down the tongue and groove flooring.

Where to find it?
The flooring that Tom installed was ?" x 3-?" nail-down T&G Brazilian Koa wood. It was provided by Lumber Liquidators

Hands-Free Kitchen Fixtures
Richard showed Kevin some new household devices that can be operated "hands-free" including a new kitchen faucet and a soap dispenser.

Where to find it?
The hands-free faucet that Richard showed is the Addison Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet Featuring Touch20 Technology (model 9192T-DST) manufactured by Delta Faucet

The hands-free soap dispenser that Richard showed is the Compact Sensor Pump, manufactured by Simple Human.
