The Lewis Family:
Layton and Lucinda are busy working parents. Between his erratic schedule as an ER doctor at the city's main hospital and Lucinda's hectic days of meetings and phone calls as the vice president at a major corporation downtown, they still have to drive Lara to her soccer games, pick up Lorrie from band practices, and pry Leanne out of the library. Living out in the suburbs far from the girls' school and their jobs, some days it felt like they practically lived out of their cars.
So, they made a choice. They decided to sell their home, pack up their belongings, and move to a house in the city. Sure, it's a bit smaller than they're accustomed to; that's part of the trade off. But the opportunity to actually sit down and eat dinner with each other every night made it all worth it. Layton and Lucinda still managed to find a house with a sizable master bedroom and enough space to give each of the girls their own room.
A historic, detached house on a corner lot, it may be small but it's roomy enough.

Kitchen and Dining Room:
While it's an older home, it's been recently renovated with a slightly modern edge. They left some of the original details such as the exposed brick wall in the kitchen and dental crown molding throughout the downstairs.
The living room is open to the kitchen and dining room. The Lewis' have added their own personal touches throughout the house.
Lara may be the most athletic sister, but that doesn't mean she can't like pink. In fact, she's mildly obsessed with the color, and despite being tougher than nails on the soccer field she's quite a girly girl the rest of the time.
Leanne loves to read. She gets lost in stories of far off places and daring adventure, but no book quite captures her imagination like the story of
Alice in Wonderland
. Her bedroom decor reflects her passion for the "other Lewis".
Lorrie and her guitar. The two have rarely been separated for the past few years. She enjoys loud colors almost as much as she enjoys loud music.
