The new two-story addition is framed, and the front porch is being rebuilt. Painting starts on the new wood windows. An interior wall is framed to straighten out a sag in the upper floor. Exterior colors are chosen, plumbing pipes are isolated from cold weather, and header-less window opening is framed. A foolproof method of laying out plumbing and electrical fixtures is shared.

A local community garden is visited. An existing concrete slab is made level, and a high school student works as a framer on the project. The original clay pipe is replaced with a trenchless system.
