Period Restoration — Claw Foot Tub

Episode DBTR-203

Stuart and Kelli are a young couple who love their turn-of-the-century, Tudor-style home, which is located in a charming neighborhood near the city. They have a busy lifestyle, but despite their schedules they've already managed to remodel and refurbish some parts of the home. The one room they haven't touched is the master bathroom. It's a pretty large space, and all the fixtures are in working order, but the bathroom is stuck in a time warp. Our plan is to update the entire space while paying tribute to the original, traditional style of the home.

It's time to bring in some major elements in this episode. Matthews and the homeowners put in a claw foot style, soaking tub with whirlpool jets and install the motor unit for the tub. For the traditional elements, we'll bring in the antique-looking exposed tub filler and shower, and an English style 'high on the wall' pull chain toilet.
