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 Chip and Joanna created a beautiful home out of this dilapidated outdated house and the clients were both pleased and surprised!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 never-ending question wants to know what happens to all the furniture you use inside the homes you repair? I can't see you taking back doors or other things that are purchased just for that home, and I can't see you keeping all of that itinerary either. Do the couples get the opportunity to purchase the furniture package with the house? I would like mine just the way you decorate, thank you very much! I think there are probably other 'minds that want to know' out there for this answer! Thanks very much for a truly family friendly and intuitive program. It's top of my list and I watch every single day.

    This is the most beautiful house you have rebuilt. The house is wonderful. I dream of a home like this one. Greetings from Poland!

    How do I locate the Light fixture above the Kitchen Island and the Hood over the stove?
    P.S I agree with others, this is my favorite home you have done, probably for the same reasons as some of the others but because this is the one i could have afforded!
    My Husband and I are completely gutting a Tree House Villa home, its not very big (900 sq ft) I wish so bad you could help us, but i know you keep to Waco TX. Could you give me some advice on restoring a small space. Its a circular layout.

    What color paint did you use on the interior walls of the veterinarian's house?
