Original Art and Contemporary Furnishings in the Finished Space

Project: Elmwood Neighborhood, Episode 11, Part 4

The owner of the tenth Elmwood neighborhood project house, Brent Bachelder, wants to turn the home's attic into a recreation space.

Bob joins during the demolition process, before new LVLs and windows are installed. Next, a striking new acrylic bathroom wall goes up, followed by plumbing, HVAC work, and floor repair.

Finally, Bob learns about the new Surell countertops that are going in and concludes with a tour of the finished space.

The artist-owners have added their own touches, having been partially inspired by a colorful ceiling fan (from the Modern Fan Company). They have added their own eclectic elements along with furniture pieces and shelving supplied by Ikea.

Bob talks to the homeowners about their inspiration, which is largely based on science fiction and outer space, as well as a comic strip by one of the owners, Brent. He has made the mural at one end of the space, which incorporates fiber-optic lighting.
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.
