Property Brothers: Forever Home – Season 7, Episode 20

Better Than a Halftime Show: Tenny & Lyle

When Tenny bought her house ten years ago, she loved that it was close to her mom and cousins, and the layout and small kitchen suited her bachelorette lifestyle. Five years later, she met her match, Lyle, at a tailgate party. These two college football fanatics fell in love and tied the knot.

Tenny and Lyle were excited to “marry their two families together,” but they needed a game-changing reno to make the house work for their ideal lifestyle. We totally revamped the main living areas, creating open sightlines and better functionality so this expanded family can all feel at home and continue to live (and party) happily for years to come.

Design Highlights

Spanish Style

Tenny found the old brick fireplace to be an eyesore that blocked their backyard. We shifted the TV to a neighboring wall and redid the fireplace in a Spanish stucco style. Now they can enjoy this feature without sacrificing their great outdoor view.

An Entertainer’s Kitchen

Tenny has a large family and would like to take over for her mother when it comes to hosting. We installed two massive islands and added a walk-in pantry so she wouldn’t have to store extra items in her garage anymore.

For the Boys

Whenever Lyle’s son, Ryan, visited, he stayed in a purple guest bedroom that doubled as Lyle’s home office. This didn’t fit either guy’s style, so we swapped out the purple for a more masculine color palette and gave Lyle a proper desk where he could work.
