Part 1: Building a Kitchen Staircase
Furniture maker Todd Allen builds a staircase from scratch, which will run from the basement to the kitchen, using a technique that is a couple of centuries old. Bob discusses this type of "housed staircase" and reviews the plans and techniques used to build it.
Part 2: Repairing Plaster and Installing Ceramic Shower Tiles
Part 3: Installing a Chair Rail and Restoring a Corner Cupboard
This project centers around the remodel of Bob Vila's own gracious Shingle Style home in Cambridge, MA. It's a house with a lot of history and beautiful architectural details, many of which were obliterated in remodels of the 50s and the 70s. On the centennial of the house's construction, Bob gets together the best talents in the business to recreate and renew it to its former glory, making some important modifications along the way that will transform this into a dream house for today.
