It's the day before the wrap, and host Kevin O'Connor finds homeowner Delaey Robinson believing in miracles: He's standing in his new state-of-the-art kitchen, which was a water-damaged storage room only four short months ago. He shows Kevin the stainless steel task sink, professional style range, and 48-inch refrigerator, as well as a snap-together indoor/outdoor hardwood floor for the entryway. Upstairs, Kevin finds homeowner Andrea Dismont setting up a custom closet system in the master suite. Then she shows Kevin another space saver: a stackable front-loading washer and dryer in the new laundry closet. Master carpenter Norm Abram meets exterior shutter expert Fritz Brenner to see the new pulltruded fiberglass Bermuda shutters — they're custom made, factory finished, and resistant to rot. Window treatment installer J.C. Lehren shows Kevin the interior plantation shutters going up in the master bedroom. Plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey shows Kevin the progress in the master bath that's really more "spa" than bathroom, featuring a soak tub, steam shower, and foot whirlpool. Landscape contractor Roger Cook meets project manager Alex DeCouto for a closer look at the swim spa, hot tub, and composite decks that have just gone in in the south courtyard. Then it's our last day in Bermuda, and interior designer Michele Smith shows Kevin the completed living room, dining room, and master suite. Up on the roof, the team assembles for a traditional Bermuda "roof wetting," a ceremony celebrating the end of the project with rum and good wishes. Making their way down to King's Square, the crew departs Bermuda, once again aboard the Island Raider, bound for Boston and the 25th Anniversary season.
