Kevin Edlin On Home Town
HGTV’s “Home Town” restored a family heirloom to create a welcoming and secluded home base for a musician and audio engineer Kevin Edlin in Season 5 Episode 4. Because he does back and forth between Nashville and his original home of Johns County, outside of Laurel, Mississippi, it is a perfect spot for him to work on his music.
The cabin was previously turned down for being too problematic and costly but, Erin and Ben took the challenge and restored it which has been featured on HGTV. Ben from Home Town claimed, “It could be an excellent film set for a scary movie, …or a home renovation show.”
Erin told Kevin, “I get why you want to save the cabin. I think it’s special, too. But it needs a ton of work.” To which Ben added, “What we’re talking about is kind of like a writer’s retreat.” He explained further, “A place where he can come to work on music, spend time with family, get back to his roots and then go back to Nashville.”
Erin wanted to renovate the place in such a way that it feels like it is a part of the wood. She explained, “I think of mossy rocks and stones and that’s the color palette that I’m going with for the whole cabin.”
The cabin was built by Bobby Webb, a friend of Kevin’s dad in 1980, hence the place was dubbed The Webb House. From the roof repair, siding, paint, chimney work, utilities, water heater, and electrical, the estimated cost for renovation was $40,000 before they ever get inside.
Ben and Erin did a fabulous job from the front deck, living room, kitchen, living room, and all the space in the house.
Now “The Edlin House” is available as a BNB where he charges $100-$750/night.
