Season 5, Episode 1

Hearth Room -- Island

When Chris and Julie married seven years ago, they combined more than silver and china - their combined family grew to six. They added one more and now have a houseful of kids ages 6-12. Last year, they downsized from their sprawling 1990's built house to a charming but smaller 1936 Cape Cod. They love the homey feel, but the kitchen and dining area just aren't working for the party of seven. The kitchen and attached family room were added onto the home in the 1980s. The kitchen is actually large, with a galley layout, but it seems a little disjointed. It has a small island separating it from the family room and a large nook that has a desk and prep sink. Also, the eating area isn?t big enough for everyone to sit down for daily meals. So the plan is to reconfigure and reuse many of the existing elements while making everything larger and more functional for the family of seven. After meeting our homeowners, the whole family joins in to clear out the kitchen, then the cabinets and countertops are removed. The island gets rebuilt larger in the same location out of plywood and salvaged cabinets.
