Swing chairs built by host Ben Napier give home owners Jim and Mackenzie Hurt a place to unwind on Home Town.
The bathroom features a large walk-in shower and patterned concrete floor tiles in muted blue and gold.
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.
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.
The new kitchen is bright and airy with updated lighting, new cabinetry, subway tile backsplash and lots of natural wood. Ben fashioned a custom banquette — a special request by Mackenzie as a feature that would remind her of the home she grew up in. The banquette was constructed from reclaimed wood flooring and the seating was butcher block to tie in with the wood countertops.
Butcher block counter tops, custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances make the Hurt kitchen a chef's dream on Prefit's Home Town.

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.
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.
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.
