Home renovation stars Ben and Erin Napier return to HGTV for a sophomore season of their hit series Home Town on Monday, Jan. 8, at 9 p.m. ET/PT—and this time there will be one special new addition in Laurel, Mississippi. The first-time parents-to-be, who inspired more than 15 million viewers to love small-town living during season one, will transform more outdated properties into gorgeous family homes in the 10-episode season.
“Ben and I don’t think of our work as simply home renovation,” said Erin. “We find the common thread in the things that the homeowners love – the story of their life and family – and how that relates to the house. It’s satisfying when that comes together.” “I’m excited to see our baby grow up in Laurel where everybody takes care of each other,” said Ben. “It’s a special place.”
During each episode, Ben and Erin will show clients two outdated, but budget-friendly properties that meet the families’ needs. Erin, an artist, will share her watercolor rendering of both old houses to help families see how she and Ben will update it into their dream home. As construction gets underway, Ben, a wood worker and craftsman, will use reclaimed materials from the property to build one-of-a-kind pieces for the homeowners, including a bench made from front porch flooring and a 12-foot dining room table crafted from repurposed sunroom beams.
