Season 2, Episode 1

Banquette Dreams

Virginia newlyweds look for a new place to call home in Mississippi. They have an all-in budget and a wish list that includes a banquette, a master bedroom and a spacious front porch. After showing the couple two houses, Ben and Erin begin work creating a warm, welcoming cottage with never-before-seen porch swings and a beautiful kitchen banquette that reminds the happy couple of home.

Custom Built Swing Chairs on Neutral Craftsman Patio

Swing chairs built by host Ben Napier give home owners Jim and Mackenzie Hurt a place to unwind on Home Town.


Contemporary Neutral Master Bathroom with Double Vanity Sinks

Taking out a wall at the rear of the bathroom, and expanding into an alcove space in an adjacent bedroom, made it possible to convert to a full bath with double vanity.


Neutral Craftsman Kitchen with Brown Butcher Block Countertops

New stainless appliances and a classic apron front sink are among highlights in the new kitchen. The butcher block countertops were installed with a 45-degree corner joint for a seamless look.


Contemporary Neutral Master Bathroom with Blue and Gold Tile Floor

The bathroom features a large walk-in shower and patterned concrete floor tiles in muted blue and gold.


Neutral Craftsman Kitchen with Brown Hardwood Floor

The linoleum floor was removed and replaced with new hardwood flooring using stained yellow pine meticulously color-matched to approximate the tone of the original heart pine found throughout the rest of the home.


Neutral Craftsman Living Room with White French Doors

The bookshelves get modified slightly to give them cleaner look more in the Craftsman style, and French doors with frosted glass are added between the living room and the adjacent space that could serve as either an office or spare bedroom.


Contemporary Neutral Living Room with Mortar White Brick Fireplace

With the carpet removed, the newly revealed hardwood floors got refinished, and the fireplace is refaced, covering the grooved brick with a mortar smear, hand applied and brushed to give it a stucco-like texture.


Neutral Craftsman Master Bedroom with Black Iron Framed Bed

The queen sized bed with classic black iron frame was selected by Erin and Mallorie to match the simplicity and period of a Craftsman home. Antique record boxes from the 1930s used to create custom shadowbox-style shelves.


Neutral Contemporary Dining Room with Brown Dining Table

By far the most significant modification in this renovation was the opening up of two walls that had separated the dining room from an adjacent breakfast room and the kitchen. The new design made way for an enlarged kitchen, and the combined spaces now feels much more open and welcoming with an improved flow and sight-line.


Neutral Craftsman Home Exterior with Blue Door

Removing the aged awning and opening up the porch made all the difference in helping restore the home's traditional Craftsman appeal. Other exterior enhancements included subtly offsetting the existing trim in a khaki-cream and painting the front door in blue for added punch.
