Contemporary Expansion -- Tear Down

Keith and Miquel are a young couple who live in a '50s rambler in the suburbs. When they moved in about a year ago they knew they had some wonderful features to work with, but the kitchen was another story. While it opens to the new family room, a wall blocked it off completely from the dining room, which is isolated and dark. The cabinets and appliances all feel very tired. Host Paul Ryan is going to help the homeowners open up their space and give their kitchen a cool, contemporary style.

In this first of four episodes, architects have designed a new plan to expand and unify the kitchen with the rest of the house. The kitchen is completely torn out -- down to the studs, and the wall between the kitchen and dining room is removed. Along the way a few plumbing surprises are discovered. Then the new walls are framed in.

Enjoy a short Video Preview of the kitchen's before-and-after design.
