From Studs to Spindles

A previous contractor ripped an 1890s Craftsman-style home down to the studs before abandoning it, and Tamara Day is stepping in to finish the renovation and save the house. She repairs substantial structural damage and tears down a load-bearing wall to enlarge the tiny kitchen. An exterior iron staircase presents problems for both the curb appeal and progress on the renovations, and missing spindles from the original staircase send Tamara to the wood shop to create exact replicas.
