Host Steve Thomas opens this episode with a tour of the Dreamland Theatre, the only movie theater on Nantucket Island. Built in 1829, this fabulous structure is for sale. Back at the house, Norm Abram watches as the replica of the original glass is added to the original doors. Due to the island's high humidity, blue board is used througout the house. Thomas and designer, Jock Gifford visits another home on the island to get ideas on kitchen designs. They then go to a home center to see what design items are available.
