Building Homes Season 1 Episode 1 recap
Episode 1 of the show was titled Bringing the Outdoors In and featured Ben and Cristi Dozier renovating a family home located in the mountains.
The couple reconnected with their roots as their first client turned out to be from their hometown of Texas. The client asked Ben and Cristi to renovate their home, which they felt was cramped up inside.
They had a budget of $200,000 but wanted the renovation project to be over in eight to ten weeks.
In this episode of Building Roots, Ben built a double deck in the house with new mantels. The couple also transformed the kitchen, which was small and congested, into an open brick tiled kitchen. Ben and Cristi also added a private door to their bedroom and renovated their bathroom to give their clients a better view.
They tore down the carpeted stairs of the house and turned it into a straight steel staircase. Ben chose natural colors for the interior of the house to connect the home to the outdoors.
Cristi used Bohemanian products to decorate the home, as requested by her client. The home looked natural, although it was built with a steel framework.
From the expanded deck outside to the fresh interior with lots of natural light, the clients were astonished by the Doziers’ gorgeous designs.
During the episode of Building Roots, Cristi also managed another stunning transformation, turning a drab basecamp for a local horse riding outfitter into an adventure escape pod.
She chose neutral colors to decorate the tents and a natural wood-based table to give the impression of "growing out of the ground." Her client was impressed with the result and told Cristi:
"It's an absolute piece of artwork."
