“Home Town” stars Erin and Ben Napier know which home renovations are most popular these days. But they also know well that sometimes, upgrades aren’t the best idea—particularly if you want your house to have character.
In the latest episode, “A Laurel Hug,” Erin and Ben meet up with an old friend, Kendall, who recently lost her husband. She’s decided to move back home to Laurel, MS, to be closer to family, and has bought a house for $110,000. She loves this 1940s build, but Erin and Ben know the place will require a lot of work—and more cash than her $115,000 renovation budget will allow.
