The original chimney was corbeled in the attic, so it came out of the ridge line of the roof. The homeowners don’t need a chimney, but the Historic Commission insists they keep one. Kevin O’Connor and Jeff Sweenor meet Mark McCullough on the roof to find out how the masons will make a new chimney look old. Most aspects of Victorian architecture screamed for attention, especially the Queen Ann version.

This project features an amazing display of shingle styles. Tom Silva finds lead carpenter Adam working on the staggered shingles on the front porch.

As with most projects these days, the homeowners want an open floor plan. While the show was on Covid lockdown, Jeff brought in a steel crew to provide the support he needed.

Not far from the project is an artisan who creates pieces of art from glass. This craftsman and his wife make one simple object that has caught the imagination of Rhode Island’s famous tourist attraction, Block Island.

Rough plumbing has started in the master bath. The homeowners have asked for a drain wall. Richard Trethewey finds plumber Josh installing the shower drain unit.
