Host Kevin O'Connor and master carpenter Norm Abram tour scenic Essex, Massachusetts, and roll up to our new project: a 1935 English-style cottage in the woods that homeowners John and Julie Corcoran hope to turn into an accessible in-law residence for aging parents. Architect Sally DeGan and general contractor Tom Silva use a 3-D model to preview the plan for aging in place, and work begins.
