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This bathroom was outdated and no longer functional for the family.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!

    We visited Magnolia Market in January 2017. Loved every aspect and returned the next day. Also visited Harp designs & of course JDH Iron Designs. We have used many of your design ideas and we both enjoy Fixer Upper. We feel like we know your family and appreciate your approach to a balanced life. Praying for another successful season. Keep doing what you're doing. You are influencing a nation.

    A huge HELLO Joanna and Chip from Australia! I'm so addicted to Fixer Upper, not just for the magnificent transformations that are nothing short of divine, but for your banter and humour, Chip's antics, your wonderful family values and traditions that you create to make quality family time with your gorgeous children paramount, it's truly inspirational on so many levels! I think the wonderful people in your slice of America are very much like Australians, down to earth, genuine, same sense of humour, we have a very similar lifestyle. I am originally from Sydney but have moved 2 hours down south to Wollongong on the coast, a twenty minute walk to the beach and a short drive to farms, lush green rolling hills and a slightly more relaxed pace, it must be the fresh sea air! Your show inspires me, has me in fits of giggles, gets me dreaming even though I only rent and leaves me feeling warm and fuzzy with a huge smile on my face, much like chocolate really!

    Blessings and love to you both and the kids,

    There has been so many rumors that Fixer Upper is not going to be any longer. I am one of the many loyal fans that have grown to appreciate and love what Chip and Jo has given all their fans. I will forever be grateful for the time they have been on Fixer Upper. Sincerely your most loyal fan, Sheila Shannon
