Property Brothers: Forever Home – Season 7, Episode 12
Reno With a View: Brian & Lily
When they found a house on a hill with stunning views and a short commute to work, Brian and Lily knew it was their forever home. It had plenty of room to grow into, which was ideal since they planned to start a family. But the unusual and choppy main floor layout was getting in the way.
We overcame some major structural issues to create an open floor plan with a beautiful kitchen, living room, and dining area for Brian and Lily, along with a few extra perks for their dog, Moose.
Before & After
No Place Like Home
The biggest problem Brian and Lily had with their living room was that it didn’t really reflect their personalities. We updated the fireplace with some Spanish-style tile and brought in treasured pieces like their piano to create a warm and inviting environment where they can entertain guests.
Freedom and Function
Their biggest dream during this renovation was to finally open up their cramped kitchen. Previous owners had tried some changes that weren’t up to code, so we had to go back and fix a lot of the structural issues left behind. But once we were done, Brian and Lily had all the function and flow they had been sorely needing.
Sit Back and Relax
There was so much space once we opened things up that we even had room to include a cozy breakfast nook. Every day, they can make their coffee, sit back, and enjoy their wonderful view.
