House remodel leads to home field advantage

Written by: Christopher Lawton

Retired from professional football, former Steeler defensive end Aaron Smith and his wife Jaimie considered moving their family back to their hometown in Colorado. “Aaron and I met at school there and our families had lived there for generations,” says Jaimie. 

“But the last 17 years of our lives we have lived in Pittsburgh—initially while I played for the Steelers and currently, ever since I retired,” adds Aaron. “All of our kids were raised here, and we all have great friends here—through our extended football family and through our church.”  Their decision to stay in Pittsburgh led them to embark on a house remodel to fit their family’s needs.
