E21 | First Period Gambrel | Exposing Problems

Season 44 Episode 21 | 23m 42s  | Video has closed captioning.

The homeowners want the old ceiling framing exposed in the gambrel bedrooms which prohibits conventional insulating. An alternative method is shown - insulating from the outside. Framing presents a challenge for running pipes. Peculiar discovers are made. A lighting solution for the new ell is devised, and a lesson is given on how to waterproof and install shingles where multiple rooflines meet.
