Still image from This Old House: Trade School--New Siding and a New Driveway

General contractor Tom Silva installs new red cedar clapboards on the oldest part of the house using a story pole to match the coursing of a later addition. Landscape contractor Roger Cook installs a new horseshoe-shaped asphalt driveway that will later be topped with a rustic finish to make it look like a stone driveway. Then, plumbing expert Richard Trethewey shows how he is solving a rough plumbing problem by using a wet vent in the downstairs powder room. Part of the "This Old House: Trade School" series.
