This Old House - Episode #3326
After 7 months of hard work, landscape designer Cricket Beauregard completes the exterior look with a pair of classically inspired urns at the front walk. Inside, General Contractor Tom Silva stows things away in the attic with the help of a new fire-rated pull down stairway. As the glass shower doors go in, Tom details how he modified the master bath to accommodate a steam shower. Homeowner Malcolm Faulds and Plumbing and Heating Expert Richard Trethewey check out the newly finished basement spaces, including the mechanical room that features a new style of energy-efficient circulator pump that could provide big energy savings for the household. Upstairs, homeowner Heather Faulds shows Master Carpenter Norm Abram the finished bedrooms, baths, and laundry spaces. On the first floor, designer Christine Tuttle shows Host Kevin O'Connor the decor choices that give the home a period inspired, but unfussy feel. The most dramatic part of the transformation is clearly the spacious new eat-in kitchen and the whole group gathers there to celebrate the renaissance of this beautiful Italianate home.

Ask This Old House - Episode #1226

This special episode is all about renovating kitchens. General Contractor Tom Silva and Host Kevin O'Connor help a homeowner install new cabinets. Plumbing and Heating Expert Richard Trethewey shows many options for countertops. And Kevin visits the Cleveland home and restaurant kitchens of Chef Michael Symon for ideas and inspiration.

Installing Kitchen Cabinets
Tom and Kevin install new cabinets in a townhouse kitchen.

Where to find it?
The cabinets that the homeowner selected are from the B. Jorgsen & Co. Victoria Ivory collection from Cabinets. They also supplied the matching crown molding and the pantry units.

Expert assistance with this project was provided by Quality Design of Weymouth, who can be reached at 781-686-4804.

Countertop Options
Richard presents options for countertop materials.

Where to find it?
Richard showed options for laminate colors, which were provided by Formica.

Richard also discussed wood, engineered stone, and natural stone.

The kitchen showroom belongs to Right Angle Kitchens & Design. The natural stone showroom where homeowners can select their own slab and also provides factory sealing is Stone Decor Galleria.

Chef Michael Symon?s Kitchens
Kevin heads to Cleveland to tour Chef Michael Symon?s restaurant kitchen and learn about working in a commercial kitchen. Michael also takes Kevin to his still under construction home kitchen, which was inspired by the restaurant.

Where to find it?
Michael Symon is a host of ABC?s The Chew.

His restaurant, Lola Bistro is located in Downtown Cleveland, Ohio.

Expert assistance with this project was provided by KitchenLab and Season Contractors of Northeast Ohio.

Kitchen Makeover Complete!
Kevin returns to the townhouse kitchen to see the completed space including a new pantry unit, installed countertops, new faucet, and new appliances.

Where to find it?
The homeowner selected a Bianco Carrara marble countertop, fabricated and installed by International Stone Inc.

She selected the Kipton chrome one-handle high arc pulldown kitchen faucet, manufactured by Moen.
