The Cochran House: Color Psychology

Lisa and Mike run a non-profit that provides transitional housing for women who are recovering from difficulties. They’re passionate about restoring old houses because they believe that things that are imperfect and broken can be made beautiful again, just like the lives of the women they help. Working with an all-in modest budget of $100,000, Ben and Erin show them the Sherman House, a classic craftsman with a partially demoed interior, and the Watson House, a cottage with a cute porch but a dark and cramped interior. Ben and Erin get scrappy and turn a neglected building into an uplifting oasis of calm and safety where new beginnings can flourish.
