Season 1, Episode 2

A House With History

Will, Courtney and their boys have outgrown their starter home, so they enlist Ben and Erin to help them find their forever house. On their wish list is a sizeable, historic house that's rich in character and small town charm. Ben and Erin show the couple two homes: a large house that is short on personality, and a smaller house with loads of character but a long list of necessary repairs. With an all-in budget of $200,000, Will and Courtney have to weigh out what matters most.

Rustic Neutral Kitchen with Green Wooden Cabinets

A neutral rustic kitchen with green wooden cabinets is shown, as seen on HGTV's Home Town.

Rustic Green and Brown Dining Room with Brass Chandelier

The old wallpaper was retained on the section of wall surrounding the fireplace, creating a distinctive visual focal point in the room. The existing brass chandelier was retained as well.

Classic White Master Bedroom with Hardwood Flooring

The master bedroom is given a fresh and classic look as well, with the old blue wall-to-wall carpet removed, revealing hardwood floors, and the room furnished with period-appropriate furniture and accessories.

Rustic Gray Living Room with Custom Mantel

The living room takes on a more classic feel with a subtle gray wall color, fresh white trim, and a new fireplace mantel. The mantel was custom made from reclaimed cypress wood salvaged from a New Orleans home.

Contemporary Blue Sitting Room with White Trim

The sitting room portion of the master suite takes on a whole new look with rich blue wall paint, fresh white trim, new window treatments and gallery wall.

Rustic Neutral Den with Hardwood Brown Floors
