Episode Info

Host Steve Thomas and carpenter Norm Abram tour the Lake Forest, Ill., home of Heidi and Mike Smith, winners of the show's "Dream Kitchen" contest. It's a lovely 1928 Tudor house, but the narrow kitchen is too small for the Smiths and their 5-year-old triplets. And the ambitious renovation design presented by architect John Krasnodebski is some $20,000 higher than the Smiths' budget---before cost-chopper Abram goes to work. Also: plumbing-heating expert Richard Trethewey sets up a temporary kitchen in the house's sun porch for use during renovations.
