Austin & Cody

With seven kids plus a baby on the way, Austin and Cody needed a home that would comfortably fit a family of 10. Since most houses simply aren’t built for that many people, we knew that whatever we found would have to undergo some major renovations to make it work. Luckily, we found a spacious, two-floor home with a large yard in a convenient neighborhood that everyone agreed felt like home. Over the next eight weeks—we had to get the renovations done before baby number eight arrived!—we knocked down walls, overhauled the kitchen and family room, and made sure every detail served a purpose in order to give Austin and Cody a new home that’s as functional as it is stylish.

Before & After


Of all the rooms in the house, Cody and Austin were most particular about the kitchen—and with good reason! The whole family likes to help cook, and the oldest kids are frequent bakers (they recently sold more than 40 dozen cookies to raise money for a vacation!). There also had to be enough room for the whole crew to comfortably sit down to a meal. An oversized island, dedicated baking station, and 22′ built-in banquette with dual tables ensure there’s a place for everyone in the family’s new kitchen.


Doing laundry for 10 is a big job, and the home’s original laundry room was definitely not up to the task. We took out a closet to enlarge the room’s useable space, and also added more cabinets and counter space to make room for laundry baskets. We could have stacked the washer and dryer to even further maximize space, but side-by-side units are easier for the kids to operate, which was among the most important consideration for this room!


We carved out a bit of the family room to create a space for the kids to call their own. We wanted the space to be functional for both studying and lounging, which we accomplished with built-in workstations, plenty of storage space (each kid gets their cubby area) and sturdy, cushy loungers are great for doing homework or hanging out. With a homework nook like this, who wouldn’t want to study all night?
