A Master Bathroom Renovation

June 9, 2017

We’ve been doing construction for upwards of 15 years, and before the show started, taking on projects like this one used to be the bread and butter of our construction business. We’re going to start featuring more small projects like this one on the blog, and thought this was the perfect reno to kick it off with.

This bathroom was outdated and no longer functional for the family. The budget for the project was between $15,000-$20,000, and the key to staying within this budget was keeping the space’s original layout and making cosmetic updates. Keeping the plumbing where it was originally saved us thousands of dollars, and cut the timeline for the project in half.

To customize the space, we added layers—like custom shelving and chair railing to really create a comfortable, cohesive bathroom where our clients could relax and unwind.



If you’re like me and anxiously waiting for season 5 to air, keep checking the blog and our social media accounts @magnolia and @joannagaines for sneak peeks and also an inside look into other projects we have going on. What are you most excited about seeing next season? Let me know in the comments below!

    I am so grateful to find out that Fixer Upper will be on next season! I have a special needs son that watches this show "ALL" of the time. We had to go to Waco for another reason a couple of weeks ago and he asked us to drive by the Silo's so he could see the reality of what he has watched on TV. I was shocked at the many tourist! It was so packed we could not stop and get him in the store or bakery. However he was so happy to just see it through the car window. I asked him why he liked your show so much. His response was "They are really nice people and what they do is so cool! This is truly out of character for a 40 year old that was injured at 24. He remembers playing football, sailing and all the other things he used to be able to do. Thank you for giving him something that makes him smile and enjoy so much!

    I will be watching the new room and house designs. Plus, I enjoy your interaction with all people.
    I love animals and all of nature, so I like seeing your farm and watching each animal.
    I agree with how you're teaching your children responsibilities and respect for everything.
    I admire the skill, patience and self character of you.

    When will Season be on the air? Really looking forward to see what else can be created.
    Hope all the "bad" vibes have not soured you and yours.
    Take care and may God continue to bless all of your family.

    I know it was mentioned above that the shelving was custom, but where might I find something like it? My husband and I are doing a bathroom reno ourselves and this would be perfect in the space. Thank you!
