The Bell House: The Cafe House

Brothers Elliot and Connor Bell are young restauranteurs wanting to open a cafe near downtown Laurel. The property also needs to have an apartment for Connor. Ben and Erin show them two houses with perfect locations. The Boteler house, with a closed in front porch perfect for cafe seating. And the Stassi house, that has unique architecture but also extensive rot on the inside and outside. With an all in budget under $250k, Ben and Erin have their work cut out for them, but are able to give the Bell brothers a functioning cafe kitchen, beautiful cafe dining rooms and an incredibly efficient apartment for Connor.
