The kitchen features birch cabinets, but the rest of the design is circa 1970 and somewhere along the line the kitchen lost its charm. The layout is all wrong. The appliances don't fit in the space and right now there's no room for a dishwasher. The goal is to work with the existing cabinets and bring the kitchen back to its original beauty with all of the updates of today.
In the final episode of this Victorian makeover a genuine soapstone sink and counters are installed. A pressed copper backsplash is put up to add to the historic feeling. A remodeling box is put in so we can install our period lighting. Finally, the new appliances, which are exact replicas of an old cookstove and an old icebox, are brought in.
