These must be exciting times for Chip and Joanna Gaines, the husband and wife team behind Magnolia Homes. These two have carved out a niche for themselves renovating and restoring historic properties into absolutely legit luxury homes.
After a successful pilot, the two have inked a 12-episode deal with HGTV to produce a series dubbed “Fixer Upper” in which the pair will take dilapidated and neglected structures from gross to glam in their signature style. Joanna gushed about hearing from HGTV on her blog, The Magnolia Mom:
We couldn’t believe what we were hearing as they went into detail about the ratings and the nationwide response. It’s been two weeks since we found out (we couldn’t go public about it until now) and it still hasn’t set in. All I know is that it’s going to be exciting, crazy, and an adventure like no other. We are going to need a lot of prayer as we juggle our family, our business, and the show for the next few months!
We’re thrilled to hear a Texas couple getting noticed for their hard work. They’re looking for home to feature on their HGTV show right now, and if you have a money pit in the Waco, Austin or North Texas area (sorry Houston!) you’re dying to restore, get in touch with them pronto! Details are below!
Here are the details, we start at the end of August and complete filming in March 2014. We will be renovating 12 homes in Waco and the surrounding communities, Dallas/Ft Worth, and Austin. The network is about to put out a casting call for these locations. If you or anyone you know is looking to buy a fixer upper in these areas, please tell them to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to be a part of your renovation!
