Season 1, Episode 26 The This Old House Hour

First Aired: April 3, 2003

The Lake Forest, Ill., kitchen project concludes with a “wrap party” prepared, appropriately, in the new kitchen by homeowner Heidi Smith and Chicago chef Rick Bayless. But first, host Steve Thomas inspects the lighting and the paint job on the cabinets. Thomas also inspects the kitchen in Bayless's home on Chicago's north side, and homeowner Mike Smith discusses the project's cost. Then, on “Ask This Old House,” projects include planting tomatoes, clearing a stopped toilet and (in the “Housecall” segment) installing folding attic stairs.
