This Old House

Barrington Project, Part 3 of 10

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Builder Andy Tiplady takes host Kevin O'Connor out on the water to gather provisions for an authentic Rhode Island clambake. Later, back at the project house, he shows master carpenter Norm Abram the windows he's using and how he's installing them using a custom copper pan for flashing - his preferred method in coastal situations. Kevin visits the Hurricane Research Lab at the University of Florida to see how they are protecting buildings through research and, with the help of the world's largest portable hurricane simulator, to feel what it's like to stand in a Category 3 hurricane. Back in Barrington, Andy installs architectural shingles with the requisite "hurricane nailing" pattern that is required by local code. At the end of the day, it is time for the clambake down on the beach, and Andy puts Kevin to work pulling it all off just as family and friends arrive to enjoy the good life on the Rhode Island shore before the cold weather sets in.
