Detroit | Stained Glass Revival
Coming up on this episode of This Old House
Kevin stops by the Grandmont Rosedale project to find the kitchen tile and cabinets installed. He watches as the granite countertops go in.
Back in Russell Woods, Tommy works with Josh and Frank to reinstall all of the restored leaded glass bay windows.
Now that drywall is up in the kitchen, Frank is ready to install the wood grain tile on the floor. First Josh puts down a decoupling membrane underlayment that supports an electric wire heating system.
Kevin and Roger explore urban farming in Detroit. First they visit a resident who has purchased the lots surrounded her property to grow her own food. Next, a neighborhood farm that helps feed the immediate neighborhood residents who live in a food desert. Finally, a farm closer to the city with an apprenticeship program that provides area residents with job and education opportunities.
Back at the house, Roger installs a drywell at the front and back of the house in order to move rain water away from the house and prevent it from getting into the basement. Tommy, Frank, Josh and Kevin team up to install the cabinets in the kitchen.
