Season 1, Episode 4

Cottage Charm

Coy and Kenya are moving to town to be close to their children and grandchildren. As empty nesters, they want to downsize into a historic cottage with an all-in budget of $125,000. Ben and Erin show the couple two cottages: a small, dated house with exterior charm, and a cottage that makes up for its lack of character with an attractive asking price.

Yellow and Blue Front Porch with Brown Wicker Chairs

Full, functioning window shutters were custom built by Home Town host Ben Naiper in his woodshop and painted in pale blue to match the painted concrete porch.

White Cottage Living Room with Hardwood Brown Flooring

Fresh white paint and new window treatments help brighten up the space, and the old carpeting is removed to reveal the original hardwood floors.

Neutral Cottage Dining Room with Kitchen Peninsula

A portion of the dining room wall was removed, opening the space up to the kitchen and making room for a new kitchen peninsula. The framed items in the corner gallery were found in the house and are from the former owner.

Yellow Cottage Exterior with Blue Porch and Shutters

The exterior gets a color-themed upgrade, going from plain, flat white to a pale yellow with soft blue accents. The concrete porch is painted blue to match the new custom shutters and a single French door is added along with a new porch swing and outdoor furniture. The existing columns get dressed up with sash curtains.

Green and White Cottage Dining Room with Beadboard Walls

Exposing the original hardwood flooring and beadboard walls revitalize this space while paying respect to its history. The bead board, though freshly painted, is left in its semi-distressed state, with original nail holes and cracks from aging.

White Cottage Living Room with Fireplace

The fireplace, now opened up and the interior painted black, along with some framed art and accessories, becomes a strong visual focal point in the room.
