This Old House

Dream Kitchen (Part 7 of 8) (#2225)

On the way to the Lake Forest jobsite, host Steve Thomas visits a stone fabrication shop to see where our Dream Kitchen countertops (an Italian sandstone known as Pietra del Cardoso) came from. Jim Kapcheck, a fourth-generation countertop fabricator, shows Steve what's hot in countertops and how his shop combines automation with hand-craftsmanship. At the jobsite, with only six working days left to go, project manager Jim Eimerman gives Steve a rundown of his punchlist. The countertops go in, Steve lends a hand setting the cast iron farm sink, and plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey installs an elaborate faucet system containing a retractable sprayer head and an undercounter water filtration unit.
