HGTV Update

July 9, 2013

It has been a few weeks since the Pilot aired for HGTV. We weren’t given a time frame on when we would hear back from the network on whether or not we got the show. So we waited a week, and then another week, and then as the weeks went by we honestly stopped thinking about it.

Well, we finally heard from our producer and we were absolutely shocked when he told us that HGTV wanted 12 more episodes of Fixer Upper. We couldn’t believe what we were hearing as they went into detail about the ratings and the nationwide response. It’s been two weeks since we found out (we couldn’t go public about it until now) and it still hasn’t set in. All I know is that it’s going to be exciting, crazy, and an adventure like no other. We are going to need a lot of prayer as we juggle our family, our business, and the show for the next few months!

I forgot what it was like with all this going on. We are going to have to get used to this again…

Here are the details, we start at the end of August and complete filming in March 2014. We will be renovating 12 homes in Waco and the surrounding communities, Dallas/Ft Worth, and Austin. The network is about to put out a casting call for these locations. If you or anyone you know is looking to buy a fixer upper in these areas, please tell them to contact us at fixerupperinfo@gmail.com. We would love to be a part of your renovation!

I can’t wait to share in this journey with you on my blog! Stay tuned for more details coming soon…

    I am planning to have some extensive remodeling done and would like to use software to help visualize various ideas. Could you tell me where do I obtain the software?
