If there ever was a show that has inpired me to do my own thing is this one. Chip and Joanna Gaines are a dynamic duo, the married couple we all strive to be. She is the literal beauty of the operation, the looks, hearts and soul of the transformations. He is the brawn, the nothing is impossible if you put some muscle and thought into it. Plus he is the realtor. 😎 They don’t let raising four children and managing 10 projects at a time scare them or stop them. No excuses. Faith and talent sees them through.
Every time they renovate a house my heart grows with love, hope and warmth. From the engineering to the decorations everything is done with great care in the most frugal/not wasteful way. They recycle materials from the torn down houses and use them to build finishing touches that add character and history, honoring the story of the residences they restore for those brave enough to take on a fixer upper. They are inspired by jobs no one else would undertake. These are the kind of people you want to trust with your home.
Having gone through the experience of customizing a home from scratch, the value of their collective endeavors and enterprising spirit is admirable and, well, awesome. They move heaven and earth to get you into your dream home as quickly and painlessly as possible, and within budget. I envy their prowess, charisma, charm and integrity. They get it done, Texas style!
Watch all the shiplap and wood glory in HD on HGTV. Binge! It’s so worth it.
