Episode Summary

EDIT
Removing Poison Ivy/What Is It?/Installing Shingles on an Outside Corner
AIRED:
Roger helps homeowner Brian Grace remove poison ivy from his backyard without the use of herbicides. He suggests wearing long pants, long sleeves, gloves, and eye-protection. In the Ask This Old House loft, Tom, Richard, Roger and Kevin examine an unfamiliar object and try to guess how it is used. Then Tom shows homeowner Dan Nutton how to install cedar shingles and weave an outside corner on his house in Lowell, Massachusetts. First, he uses a story pole to record the coursing of the existing shingles. He then removes the shingles with a pitchfork and a pry bar, and uses rosin paper to separate the sheathing from the new shingles.moreless
