As part of the Parker home transformation in Atlanta, GA, licensed contractor Chip Wade took out a number of walls in the kitchen and living room to make an open air living area.

The living area also includes a multi-use ottoman for everyone in the family-including the dog. This creates a central area for the kids to work and spend time with their parents, as seen on DIY Network's Elbow Room.
