I put them in a HighPoint RocketStor 6328LS 8 bay drive tower. It is fast and quiet and holds 8 drives so that is great. It also comes in a 4 bay version for a little less.

Big House, Smart, Better in every way, get one of these
Their advice is 1 Eero per 1000 square feet of house
Cheap, Solid, Simple
If the Eero is too expensive to get started then this Archer C7 is the best cheap normal router where it is just a box with a bunch of antennas with it.
TP-Link Archer C7 v2
But I am a pro!?! What do you you use???
Well I use a Unifi Security Gateway (USG for short) and have my house wired with ethernet cable that links the USG to a few Unifi UAP-AC-PRO wifi access points. Another option for the router is the Edgerouter ER-X model. It is a very powerful professional level router but at a bargain price. Can be intimidating to set up and manage. Unifi stuff is powerful, professional but has a great user interface.
