A progress tour of the house is given, starting at the back addition, through the walkout basement and mechanical spaces, then up to the main floor. Repairs are made to the 1960 brick, including matching the original color and texture of the mortar. The homeowner gets help building a DIY ramp. Nearby, a modern accessible house is toured. New energy codes prompt changes to the exterior trim plan.
