See How This Family Put Their Mark on Their Dream Kitchen

In recent years, Brian Midkiff’s job has required moving his family around the country, but packing up this time was a challenge for his wife, Tobie, and their two daughters. The Midkiffs had just finished a massive renovation of their home that resulted in Tobie’s dream kitchen. Nonetheless, they went searching for a home in their new Southern location.

Even though they had gutted the kitchens in their last four homes, this time was different. “We were looking for a house that would fit our family needs but did not require a lot of improvements. Yet, we wanted one we could put our mark on,” Tobie says. And they found one—a 1930s classic with beautiful bones. It even had enough room for a cozy sitting area where Tobie could hang the girls’ framed artwork.
