With the interior opened up, master carpenter Norm Abram shows host Kevin O'Connor the bones of the building. On the first floor, general contractor Tom Silva relocates a load-bearing partition wall and takes the dip out of the floor. Out front, Kevin and homeowner Sally learn about the appropriate colors for the outside of her Victorian-era house. Later, Sally takes Kevin to a nearby shop to see the style she's after for the interior of the house. In the second half of the hour, on ASK THIS OLD HOUSE, Tom builds a custom fireplace mantel for a homeowner. Then, landscape contractor Roger Cook shares some tips about garden edging. Afterward, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey helps a homeowner repair a leaking kitchen faucet.
