Episode 12 - The 5th Street Story

November 11, 2015

This house was built in the early 1900’s and was quite the fixer upper. Chip and Joanna loved working with the clients to restore this old home in The 5th Street Story. Our client wanted to bring this house back to life in order to surprise her husband. They are both enjoy biking and running and wanted to be close to Cameron Park in Waco. The house is around the corner from the park – the perfect location! Joanna wanted to surprise them with a vintage bike she found and displayed it in the office living space for the clients. Chip and Joanna created a beautiful home out of this dilapidated outdated house and the clients were both pleased and surprised!

    My husband and I love you, your family and the show! We are so excited to stay in the Mailander home next week and visit the Silos for the first time. We hope to see you around!

    Do you possibly have any more pics of this beautiful home? And maybe a rough floor plan?

    Okay, so this is my absolute favorite house you have done! Love the transom widows and doors, and the Kitchen - those big windows over the sink, you brought it back perfectly! Thank you for loving old homes, I do too. They remind me of wonderful summers with my Grandma in Odessa, MO.

    Is there a way that I can contact the owners and just buy the house from them? I'm in love!

    What an amazing house with character you just don't find anymore! Any chance you have a rough layout of the home so we can duplicate it here in Charleston? It would be perfect here!
