Season 4 Wrap Up

April 26, 2017

As we wrap Season 4 of Fixer Upper, Chip and I want to say thank you for the continued support and encouragement. It was a season filled with laughs, tears, and lots of unique homes. We are also thankful for our clients- they remain the core of why we do what we do. Every home and family has a special story to tell and we love having the opportunity to serve them.

Repurposing a piece from the past is always going to be one of my favorite aspects of design. I love mixing old with new, and that will never change. Here are a few of my favorite antique finds from season 4.


Here are some of my favorite unique features from season 4. From double sided fireplaces to scalloped walls, we had fun adding unexpected character into every home.

We love shiplap, that’s no secret. This season I found myself wondering if we could push the envelope with it, so we added different styles that matched the personalities of our clients. Rather than sticking with the classic horizontal wide plank (which I still love) we also added vertical shiplap, SKINNYlap (a more narrow version), vertical skinnylap, shiplap on the ceiling and even shiplap painted black. Here are some of my favorite uses from this season.


Each client we work with has a different design style, way of living, and unique story. Part of the fun of designing for specific clients is customizing their home to work for their current season of life. Here are a few of my favorite custom projects we worked on this season.

The exterior is our client’s first impression of their new home, and this season we brought you some dramatic and fun reveals. The goal here is always to give the family a home that reflects their personal style. The initial exterior reveal is one of my favorite parts of the show, because the looks on our clients’ faces says it all!

So what’s next? We started filming the construction for Season 5 in December, so we are right in the middle of demo, design, and crazy reveals. We are also filming Fixer Upper: Behind the Design, which will air after each episode in season 5 to give you a little more design perspective. I love this, because we finally get to give y’all a glimpse of what happens beyond the camera!

Remember, you can check out my blog post on each and every house for even more details here. Comment below and let me know which project last season was your favorite! And stay tuned. More to come!

    Chip and Joanna, I just finished reading your book! It is awesome! In one chapter, Chip states, "if we ever write a marriage book....."! This book is a book about marriage, family, spirituality, kindness, friendship, parenting, and good business. Joanna, you wonder in the book what makes people want to watch you. I think for each person it is something different. For us, we watch because you remind us of ourselves. You are the ages of our children, and we have been fixing up our 120 year old farm home for 25 years, a little at a time as we could afford. Kevin is like Chip, loving demo day. He always says, "it doesn't cost anything to take out a wall"!!! :) He is always making me laugh, sometimes to chase away the tears! We love watching you and your family and thank you for the privilege.

    Chip and Joanna,
    Your love for family, creativity, work ethic, moral values, and how you love your work are very inspiring. It's what our great country was founded on. Our world is a tough place, especially if you are successful. Sadly, because of it, some people get jealous and try to tear you down. Stay strong in the Lord and He will guide you through anything. I pray that God continues to bless you and your family, placing a shield of protection around you all from whatever the Accuser tries to send your way.
    P.S. Chip you are so funny and crazy that you remind me of a few of my family members! LOL!!
