The family's new office is a tranquil space.

6 of 10
When they described what they wanted in a home office, the family told Nate they wanted it to be functional but still honor Jake's memory. Did Nate deliver? "Oh my gosh!" Steve exclaims when he sees the finished product.

Nate turned Jake's old bedroom into a cheerful, organized office for the entire family. From the calming shade of blue on the walls to the warm tones of the new Crate & Barrel desk, the new space is inviting.

Lincoln digs the new Apple laptop and the small 12-inch printer. If anyone decides to send "snail mail" instead of e-mail, they're all set with their own personalized stationary.

But some of the most important elements of the makeover aren't new purchases. "A really important thing for us, too, was that you're in this room as well and your mom and dad are in this room," Peter tells Lincoln. "So there are photos of you, Jake, [a] family photo here, so it's a family room."
