The Trest House: So Long Loft, Hello Home

A family of four has outgrown their loft and is ready to use their all-in budget of $200,000 to move into an family home with a yard. Ben and Erin show the parents two family-friendly houses — a dated, boxy home with 14 acres of property and a split-level ranch with a problem layout. Ben and Erin then transform the family’s pick into the ultimate home with an open concept and outdoor space complete with an arbor.
