A pass-through is installed in a load-bearing wall and a poorly built fence gate is replaced.
The 13th season of ASK THIS OLD HOUSE begins with Richard showing Kevin some solutions for dealing with rust staining. Tom opens up a small home by installing a pass-through in a load-bearing wall. Roger replaces a poorly built fence gate with one that will last. And the guys play "What is it?" with special guest, NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio.
