Home owner Johnny Zompanti has a problem: his nephew started a dry-stack stone wall in his backyard, but never finished it. Dean and Derek arrive to save the day and in the process demonstrate the proper way to install an old-fashioned-looking dry-stack wall using new palletized fieldstone. They take us from the quarry to the job site and provide insider tips on how to organize stone and build a solid wall that will last forever. They also incorporate three granite steps into the wall and demonstrate how to measure steps and cut the granite for proper installation.

After Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, hundreds of thousands were left homeless. How does the rest of the country help those in need? Habitat for Humanity volunteers from across the country gathered on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to build enough walls for 51 homes. It’s called Operation Home Delivery. One of those homes is going to the Carrington family in Louisiana. Watch as they begin a six-day blitz build.
