This Old House

Dream Kitchen (Part 5 of 8) (#2223)

With temperatures hovering near zero, host Steve Thomas brings general contractor Tom Silva to Lake Forest for the first time. Before heading to the project house, they decide to check up on project manager Jim Eimerman at one of the other jobs that he is running. Later at the project house, Steve and Tom meet architect John Krasnodebski to talk about ways to minimize the transitions between drywall and brick in the new eating area. Steve tells Tom about a visit he and master carpenter Norm Abram made to Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry to see planes, trains and a captured German submarine from World War Two. In the Dream Kitchen, the new pre-finished oak floor is installed, as homeowner Heidi Smith and interior designer Suzanne Cederlund show Steve the emerging plan for the kitchen design.
