In the back garden of the single house, timber framer Bruno Sutter and his crew install a custom pergola built with the assistance of students from American College of the Building Arts.

Meanwhile, landscape architect Glen Gardner oversees the planting of hydrangeas.

Ross Trethewey tours a smart home that features voice-activated thermostat control, water sensor security systems and lighting with remote-control access and scheduling.

Back at the single house, Patrick Feery begins installing the European kitchen cabinets, factoring in the brick walls and slanted floors.

Kevin meets back up with the local craftsman who’s building a table out of cypress harvested from a river. After allowing it to dry for several weeks, today he’s shaping the edges, sanding and applying multiple coats of shellac.

Over at the Elliotborough house, Richard checks out the rough plumbing and HVAC installation.

On the first floor, Kevin finds mason Carlos repointing the original fireplaces.
