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 second episode of this Victorian makeover the custom-built cabinets, created to match the existing woodwork, are installed. The old counter and windowsill are taken out to get ready for the new soapstone counter. The underlayment is prepped and then a genuine, natural linoleum floor is installed.
Host Paul Ryan installs the custom-built sink cabinets, along with the end piece that will frame the stove.
Host Paul Ryan and helpers pry the trim off a counter and remove an old, damaged windowsill so the counter can be cut out.
