A Connecticut Family Hopes To Create A Home With All Natural Elements

Jason, Eleiza and their young daughter Lily have moved all over the world for his career as a physics professor but they're ready to set down roots and buy their first home near his current job in the Hartford, CT, area. They both want a Cape Cod style home with at least three bedrooms, a spacious kitchen and space for a home office for Eleiza's political consulting career. But he wants a more rural place close to his job that will shorten his commute and she wants a place near shops and restaurants. They both want a home that uses very little plastic and instead features natural elements like stone and wood. Their combined wish list creates quite a challenge for their real estate agent Lisa Ogren as she lines up houses throughout the Hartford area. After finally agreeing on a home, Jason and Eleiza launch into their projects including gutting the kitchen to bring in organic materials like granite and bamboo. Everything from unexpected structural issues to oversized doors will delay their progress but in the end, with help from designer Lorey Cavanaugh and contractor Mike Shelto, they create a beautiful, natural home that their family can enjoy for years to come.
