Kevin opens the show in Providence, RI to meet the homeowners at their architecture office. Donald and Dana drew the plans for their renovation and they also worked out the design decisions, as they often do with their clients. Back at the house, Richard meets up with the plumber who is about to install a toilet tank. Wall hung toilets, which are commonly found in Europe, are the new trend. At the Idea House in Narragansett, Mark McCullough watches as a stone veneer goes around the fireplace in the living room. Using a cyclical mock up, Richard explains how heat pumps work. Compression makes the air hotter and expansion makes the air colder. Back in Rhode Island, Tommy works with Donald to build a sink console for the powder room. They meet in Jeff’s shop where Donald shows Tommy the steel frame he designed and had welded. For the top, they cut reclaimed oak and form an arc where the sink will sit. They cut out the holes for the sink drain and faucet and place the fixtures in to see how it all comes together.
