Finally Finishes | Brookline Mid-century Modern House
Coming up on This Old House
Doors are hung, floors are going down; it’s time for finishing touches.
Kevin finds Shawn McEvoy and his team installing a closet organization system in the master bedroom.
Our apprentice Carly’s next lesson is installing a modern baseboard. Her teacher: the master Tom Silva.
The master bath has a unique drain in the wall. Kevin gets Mark Ferrante and Kevin Bilo to show him how magnets create the illusion of a hidden drain.
The flooring chosen by our homeowners comes pre-finished, but not the stair treads, and there are a lot of stairs in this house. Tommy helps our restoration expert Wayne Towle stain the treads to match the floors.
More last-minute details include hardware for the interior doors. Kevin finds Sunil at a local hardware store where Daniel Heyligers helps sort through the options.
A challenge for any cabinet installer is to make the bathroom cabinets appear to float on the wall. Kevin finds our former apprentice, Nathan, working with his father in the master bath.
