Installing a Granite Countertop and Kitchen Cabinets

Project: Elmwood Neighborhood, Episode 2, Part 1

At the Gothic Carpenter-style home in the Elmwood neighborhood of Providence, RI, plaster and blue board are going up, and the pine floor is going down.

In addition to a granite countertop, new Whirlpool appliances are installed. Other new features in the kitchen include Shrock cabinets, a Vermont Castings gas stove, and lighting design (from Markus Earley) that depends on Restoration-style fixtures from Rejuvenation Lamp & Fixture Co. Outside, contractor Brian Wiggin completes the new deck.
Part 1: Installing a Granite Countertop and Kitchen Cabinets
Bob talks with contractors Jim Azerroe and Mike Burk. Jim is installing a granite kitchen countertop, while Mike puts in the new cabinets and drawers.

Interior Marble, a Providence-based company, installs a large slab of Puma granite, which Luke bought at auction. Premier Kitchen and Bath provides the Shrock Deluxe Cabinets.
Part 2: Mahogany Deck and Kitchen Appliances
Part 3: Installing a Gas Fireplace and Refinishing the Hardwood Floor
The theme of community building in the historic Elmwood neighborhood of Providence, RI, is the focus of this project. Rather than tackling one house, Bob Vila is helping 11 neighbors tackle smaller projects like porches, kitchens, bathrooms, and even a third-floor artist's studio.
