Turning dysfunctional 1930's home into classically vintage house with great rooms

But once they moved in they realized that the layout of the 1930's house was not functional at all! Now a nagging question haunts Kristin and Bart: can a renovation fix the problems they have with the home or would it be better to move to a new house that would fit their needs? Designer/Contractor Chip Wade shows them the reality of what moving would really mean to their wallet, and presents them with a plan to stay in their current home.

Chip Wade Breaks Down Barriers to Bring The Family to Together in this Great Room Renovation

Bryan and Kathy feel like they never get to see their kids because there's not a big enough area to hang out in for this family of 5. Their house is chopped up in to small rooms, especially their kitchen, so everyone goes their separate ways. Designer/contractor Chip Wade knows that, to bring the family together, he's going to have to make some massive changes in the home. Chip creates the gathering space by knocking down a huge feature: the fireplace that sits unused in the middle of the room. He also tackles the maze-like walls, knocking them all down to completely open up the space. The custom kitchen counter he designs has a cool home office feature and he creates a one-of-a-kind coffee table with something for everyone. Chip hopes he's created the perfect space for the family to congregate.
