Hildi arrives with Tim the electrician. Tim doesn't seem like a camera whore.
Frank comes out to talk to Amy Wynn about carpentry, calling her his "little wood nymph." He wants a coffee table/toy box that looks like an old crate that washed up on the beach.
Hildi explains that she wants Tim the Electrician to move the light switches, of which I think there are three, and the outlet, to the adjoining wall. She's sure it's simple. I'm no electrician, but I'll bet you any amount of money I know more about it and have done more rewiring than Hildi, and in my experience, even when it's "simple" (i.e. straightforward), it's never "easy," and it's usually neither. There's a reason electricians make $60-plus an hour (Canadian). MPDP informs Tim that it has to cost less than $100. Hildi wonders if she told Tim that part. What do you want to bet she engaged his services and then waited until he was there and on camera to tell him the budget? Tim considers this and decides he can do it.
Frank explains he wants Amy Wynn to cover the "nasty gravelly" surface on the sills with wood. He rambles on about screwholes and pegs.
Hildi brings her team outside to start painting the coffee table and two end tables. She's not sure if she's using both end tables, but wants them to paint everything just in case. They need to sand, prime, and paint them. She says, "You know what colour we're painting them?" She lifts up a hank of her own hair and says, "Like this colour." Frink: "No ego at all."
Frank wants his team to paint the entertainment centre, saying it's not bad, but it's dull. Frank has lumpy little round blue and white drawer pulls with a raised image of a lighthouse on them to replace the old hardware. Quaint.
Hildi reiterates that she has to return the furniture she bought for the room because of calling in the electrician. There's a shot of the three pieces. Hildi says she's going to keep the sofa table because she really wants one. Jennifer tells her that Laura has a sofa table that matches her existing set, in the back room. Hildi says if it wasn't in the room, she can't paint it. She can borrow it, but not change it in any way.
Frank tells his team to put two coats of blue paint on the entertainment centre. He also wants them to fill the shallow, vertically routed grooves on the drawer fronts with wood putty. Why, I don't know -- it sort of suggests the rustic, beachy thing he's going for here, and coordinates with the wainscoting. Seems like a really pointless, if small, waste of time and money.
