Arlington Italianate | Brick, Trim, and Tile

  • Original Air Date: March 27, 2014
  • Season 33: Ep. 21
  • 23:43

Roger installs a new front walk to replace the old one that was slapdash and too narrow using a period-appropriate waterstruck brick in a running bond pattern. Inside, Tom shows Kevin how he's using stock trim profiles for the door and window casings, but running custom profiles for the window aprons and chair rails. As they are run and installed, he offers a lesson in both coping and mitering the corners. Interior designer Christine Tuttle helps homeowner Heather Faulds make tile selections at a local showroom, suggesting practical ceramics in the utility areas and more eye-catching limestone and marble in the baths. On the second floor, Norm and Tom work to fit a new 4-panel interior door into an old door jamb. Downstairs, as the cabinet installation finishes up, kitchen designer Steve Jackowski walks Norm through the layout of the kitchen, the construction of the cabinets, and offers a preview of the countertops, tile, and striking copper vent hood that are all on their way to our kitchen
