The project’s old front porch was a hodgepodge design - part permanent, part temporary. Kevin finds Tommy framing the new front porch using custom cut and assembled rafters. The new design puts an Arts and Crafts punctuation mark on the front of the house. Nick and Emily have chosen special marble from Danby Vermont for their countertops. Richard travels to the world’s largest underground quarry where the stone originates to find out how marble makes it’s way from inside the mountain to inside the kitchen. Emily wants the new exterior color of the house to fit in with the Arts and Crafts design. She has brought in a preservation specialist, Sally Zimmerman, to help with the color selection. Norm catches up with them to find out what they have decided. Stucco panels are part of the Arts and Crafts charm of the project house, but they need work. Mark McCullough, in the process of fixing panels, shows Kevin the lost art of stucco.
