No space, no problem! This could be the new motto for the men at West End Salvage. When Audrey and Dylan bring the boys their most compact project to date, the guys rise to the challenge. Using some ingenuity from the early twentieth century, some salvage from their favorite spot, Iowa farms, and some old fashioned elbow grease, the guys come up with a fantastic solution to Audrey and Dylan's kitchen seating needs. The busy team even has time to build an elegant wine glass chandelier made of old farm wheels for Don's friend Kristi. But Rex has the icing on the cake, he takes an old, non-selling jukebox from the fourth floor and makes something supremely one of a kind. Then to top it all off, Hal buys a monkey sprinkler from a picker that you're going to have to see to believe.
The second story walls are up and Daryl's ready to get the roof on and the windows in. Using some creative carpentry techniques, the new roof will look like it's been settling for two hundred fifty years. He'll also use salvaged chestnut to build the window frames, giving the house a more authentic feel. A trip to a foundry in Pennsylvania to pick out traditionally fashioned sconces and candle stands will help Daryl put the historically accurate finishing touches on the addition to his 1787 farmhouse. Daryl tries his own hand at striking iron.
