Ben Napier Talks Fatherhood, Home Town’s Origins & Thinking Outside The Dining Table

Ben Napier sits down with me to share his thoughts on fatherhood, how kids can thrive with setting up a regular routine and why his daughter loves the show Band of Brothers. Ben talks about how the very popular HGTV show, Home Town came to be and what part of the renovation he looks forward to the most for each home. 

Ben and his wife, Erin are now on Season 4 of Home Town. Ben was kind enough to share how each season is different and what he remembers most from each season. We then end the interview with the Fatherhood Quick Five. 

About Ben Napier

Ben and Erin Napier, stars of HGTV’s Home Town, live and restore homes in a small town in Mississippi. Erin, an artist who started her career in corporate graphic design, and Ben, a woodworker with a degree in history, embrace a passion for renovating historic homes. During the series, the home-buying families benefit from Erin’s imaginative hand sketches and Ben’s custom handiwork showcasing local reclaimed materials.  

The couple, who as newlyweds bought and restored a 1925 Craftsman-style cottage, are involved in a local organization that strives to improve and grow the historic downtown district in which they reside. Ben has served as president of the group, and Erin uses her graphic design skills to create nostalgic branding and marketing to inspire the city’s rebirth.  

When they aren’t renovating homes for new residents, the couple keeps themselves busy with their four best friends operating a shop that sells heirloom wares and durable goods made in the U.S.A.
