Heating was contracted by Bensonwood
Homes to install a plumbing system in a
prefabricated home that was televised on
This Old House. The series was a 16
episode program, that was filmed both at
the Bensonwood facility in Walpole, NH;
and at the jobsite in Weston, MA. KPH
plumbers piped in two bathrooms in pre
built boxes; which were then moved on
site and set into place by a crane.
At the house site, a
master bath, and two other bathrooms
were piped in, along with the kitchen.
The heating system had radiant tubing
prepiped at the Bensonwood facility.
When the floor systems were moved on
site, we assisted in the boiler room
piping. Radiant ran throughout the
house, including the lower level slab,
the first floor and the second floor.
Solar panels were
installed on the roof; KPH installed the
piping for the solar into the boiler
room along with the solar tank. This
home achieved Silver LEED Certification
due to its use of green technologies and
low impact on the environment.
