Forever Home

Season 1, Episode 8

Erika & Benjamin

When Erika and Ben bought their six-bedroom home five years ago, people thought they were crazy. They only had one child—that was way too much space! But the couple knew that they’d found their dream home in the ideal neighborhood and didn’t want to pass it up. With three kids and two dogs, they’ve easily grown into the space, and they’re now ready to invest and make it the perfect place to raise their family. The home’s original ground floor was chopped up into a few smaller rooms and not nearly functional enough for a family of five, so we focused our attention on the heart of the home: the kitchen, living room, dining room, and mudroom. With that many people, a large mudroom with plenty of storage is a must, so we redesigned the floor plan to create a dedicated entryway, and also knocked down walls to enlarge the kitchen and give open sight lines into the living and dining rooms.
