Kira Langnese and Rodney Cook are a part-time family determined to live together full-time in their first place. Kira and their 1-year-old son, Makaih, live an hour away with Kira's mentor, while Rodney lives in his parents' basement in Portland, Ore. They can't stand seeing each other only on weekends, but a full year's worth of saving free rent enabled them to put down $5,000 to buy a three-bedroom ranch in Salem, Ore. They've never lived together, as a couple or a family, and don't know how to negotiate a style for their living room. Designer Jennifer Adams will take that off their plate and give them a space that inspires this new family.
