Maggie and Ed's 100-year-old home has both the beautiful (incredible fireplace) and the...not-so-beautiful (Brady Bunch kitchen) aspects known well to all residents of vintage homes. They also have space issues familiar to anyone who's ever lived with a musician. Join them as they reconfigure their rooms to create the optimal spaces for cooking, dining, and working.
