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 Chip and Joanna created a beautiful home out of this dilapidated outdated house and the clients were both pleased and surprised!

    This house has been my favorite fix. A mix of architecture from the outside, and cool details inside and out. Would've like to seen bedrooms.

    Very nice restoration of the 5th street house. Y'all did a great job by keeping all the original glass and the general feel of the house. I lived in this house back in the early '70s for about 4 years, but sold it to my parents when I got transferred. They used as rental property for a number of years and then sold it in the '90s.
    Joanna, I was told the dining room fireplace is hand painted slate. I hope the new owners
    enjoy the house as much as I did and I am very happy to see that it survived.
