Chip Wade designs a baker's dream kitchen/ great room that brings the family together

The Carroll's have three generations of family under one house of small closed off rooms. Nancy loves to bake, but the kitchen cuts her off from everyone else. Designer/contractor Chip Wade solves this problem by tearing out the walls to create a kitchen/great room to suite her baking needs as well as bringing the family together with a custom fireplace wall with a 9 foot fold down table, a walk thru pantry and a built-in wall oven.
