Daryl is ready to get started on the first floor, starting with the Sitting Room. Keeping it historically accurate, this front room will have a more formal and ornate look, using both reclaimed wood and crafted paneling from new lumber. A treasure hunt through Daryl's barn uncovers a valuable resource. After a little elbow grease from Steve and Joe, it will give the Sitting Room a very unique feel. However, incorporating modern technologies proves to be a challenge. Getting in heating and air conditioning without affecting the period look that Daryl is working for requires some creative thinking.
The addition to Daryl's 1787 farmhouse is getting very close to wrapping up, but there's still plenty of work that needs to be done. Now it's time for Daryl to tackle the kitchen and he gives every detail his attention. Salvaged floor boards and wall panels are installed. Then finding the right stain for the wood paneled walls presents a challenge. But when Daryl discovers a forgotten box from his past, the finishing touches come together.
It's been a long road and Daryl is close to finishing up work on the addition to his house. With family coming soon, the pressure's on and there are a lot of details Daryl still has to deal with. He needs to install tiles for the stove's alcove in the kitchen, get the custom cabinets built then stain and finish the molding in the Sitting Room. A big problem with the refrigerator delivery and a last minute change to the front yard's landscape threaten to stop his progress, but Daryl manages to get the house finished right on time.
