Washington DC: 1919 Brick Row-House -- Porch and Cabinets
Russell Clark works for the EPA and likes to do things the "right" way. He and his friend Sam Droege, a wildlife biologist and amateur builder of "green buildings" -- including several straw-bale homes -- tackle Russell's restoration of a 1919 brick row-house. When Russ bought the house five years ago, it was crumbling, but today he is well on his way to a thorough and complete restoration. However, the outside of his recently rebuilt front porch lacks handrails and appropriate latticework. With some help from Restoration Realities, Russel will mill, dado, and resurrect a replica of the original lattice and install it. Inside Russ has already removed and refinished the cabinet doors, but is stumped on how to install the glass and use something other than glazing to hold it in place. Although he has a piece of salvaged glass to install, Restoration Realities demonstrates the proper DIY manner to cut old glass and make beaded wooden glass stays.
