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 Chip and Joanna created a beautiful home out of this dilapidated outdated house and the clients were both pleased and surprised!

    Love the 5th street house. The mix of Victorian and Spanish spoke to me. Love how the paint colors blended the two styles. I love that you are going to have a show on how you design. Chip is so funny.

    This house is one of my favorites. I love that the house was purchased for $35,000. The house with the rest of the budget has a eclectic mixture of old and new. This house speaks to me.

    Joanna and Chip ,
    I am a late-comer to the wonders of Fixer Upper. I do much enjoy seeing Jo's creative process, it is instinctive and glorious. Chip'fun and loving attitude always makes me smile. The wonderful relationship you both have with your sweet,respectful and unspoiled kiddos gives me such hope with the world feeling so rocky. Please keep up the good works. It makes me feel so good when I see sweet, deserving people have success. Bless you both and the Kiddos and all the people you work with that makes the show a hit. I love that Clint is in all the shows. He too has a special spirit.

    Love your show. Can you tell me the paint color used on the 5th Street Story house (older couple with active life style, wants to be near park, Season 1, last episode). Can you tell me where the black iron chandlier over the dinning room table is from. Also the paint color used in the house. Thank you so much.
