The Aptly Named "Tree House"

This '60s-era home in Woodway, Texas -- seen here after a Fixer Upper makeover -- has a particular feature that earned it the nickname "tree house." A large live oak is situated so close to the front entrance that it appears almost to part of the house itself.

Outdoor Amenities

Floating shelves in natural wood are an eye catching accent in a new outdoor dining space.

Working Spaces

The home's reconfigured interior includes this new home office, conveniently accessible from the kitchen and with two distinct work zones.

All in the Details

In the living room, cylindrical birch-log vases and a framed antique map create a focal point atop a new mantle made from reclaimed wood.

Mr. Gaines, Tear Down This Wall?

The homeowners' initial thought was to eliminate this outdoor brick partition -- which they nicknamed "the Alamo wall." But Joanna convinced them that, with a few creative additions and some fresh landscaping, the wall could help delineate and revitalize an underutilized outdoor space.

Meet the Homeowners

Genny Davis is a real estate agent and her husband Russ is a builder specializing in new home construction, so buying an older house was perhaps not their first inclination. But they're intrigued by a particular older neighborhood and, with the encouragement of Chip and Joanna, are wlling to take the plunge.

Meet the Family

Genny and Russ accepted the challenge of a renovation, in part because they loved the location. Woodway is an established neighborhood in the Waco area with large lots, beautiful trees, parks and access to good schools.

Weighing Options

Joanna discusses the design plan and renovation options with Russ and Genny.

Photo By: Larsen & Talbert Photography

BEFORE

The 3760-square-foot home has five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths but, prior to the reonvation, the exterior was unspectacular and notably lacking in curb appeal.

AFTER

Exterior enhancements included updating the paint, trim and siding, highlighting the home's profile with window boxes and exposed redwood beams, freshening up the landscaping and converting the carport into an enclosed two-car garage.

Backyard, AFTER

For Genny and Russ and their two children, one of the home's most immediately appealing features was the sizable backyard.

Outdoor Dining Area, AFTER

"I like to make quirky spaces funtional and pretty," says Joanna Gaines. Once she convinced the homeowners not to remove the oddly placed brick wall, Joanna had it repainted to match the home's exterior and set about creating this separate space for outdoor dining and entertaining.

Outdoor Dining Area, Detail

When possible, Joanna likes to make use of recycled and upcycled materials. These floating shelves are fahioned from reclaimed cedar that was once part of an old barn.

Dining Room, BEFORE

The dining room, before the renovation, offered plenty of space but kitchen access was limited. Joanna suggested removing a wall to open and brighten things up. She also suggested enclosing the nook at the far end of this room, turning that space into a new home office.

Dining Room and Kitchen, AFTER

Raised ceilings with exposed beams, walls painted in soft gray, and a new open configuration with plenty of natural light all combine to create a unified space with a more relaxed and less confining feel.

Dining Room, AFTER

The dining room's rustic chandelier echoes the two used in the adjoining kitchen. The new home office is just behind this dining room wall and is in convenient proximity to the kitchen and living area. 

Home Office, AFTER

White cabinets and black countertops in the office pick up on the design choices used in the kitchen. Dual work stations offer ample space for Russ and Genny, both of whom work from home.

Home Office, AFTER

Designers Chip and Joanna Gaines designed this reading nook as a perfect place to relax.

Kitchen, BEFORE

With bright yellow paint, dated wood paneling, laminate countertops and poor lighting, the kitchen was dated and badly in need of an upgrade. 

Kitchen, AFTER

Opening up the entryway, lightening the color palette and adding dark wood floors help give the kitchen a cleaner and crisper look.

Kitchen, BEFORE

The existing kitchen island was small and off center. Joanna suggested replacing the island, adding black countertops and closing off the paneled alcove at the rear of the living room.

Kitchen, AFTER

The new kitchen island, with black honed granite top, is more robust and offers a wider prep area and expanded storage. 

Kitchen Detail, AFTER

Galvanized metal chandeliers and new recessed lighting provide more functional and attractive illumination in the kitchen.

Kitchen Detail, AFTER

Designers Chip and Joanna Gaines chose vertical storage for the kitchen plates, to add visual interest and convenience.

Kitchen, AFTER

Other new additions in the kitchen include Carrera marble tile backsplash, all new cabinets with brushed steel hardware and a range hood covered in natural wood.

Kitchen, AFTER

Designers Chip and Joanna Gaines chose rustic touches, including the bar stools and pendant lights, to add warmth to this kitchen.

Kitchen, AFTER

Designers Chip and Joanna Gaines created a welcoming kitchen with white cabinets, black countertops and vintage-style features such as the faucet cabinet glass and architectural details of the kitchen island.

Kitchen, AFTER

Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines designed this kitchen breakfast bar to provide extra space for eating and food prep. A display cabinet holds dishes.

Kitchen Detail, AFTER

Chip and Joanna Gaines took an old wooden tool box and turned it into a rustic planter for the kitchen.

Living Room, BEFORE

Prior to the renovation, though the living room was adequately large, the dark paneled alcove, massive fireplace and brick surround visually dominated the space.

Living Room, AFTER

The new fireplace is better suited to the room's scale, and French doors add light. The paneled alcove formerly at the far end of the room is now closed off and converted to storage.

Living Room, AFTER

The white painted brick is replaced by a natural stone surround with a rough-hewn cedar mantle.

Bathroom, BEFORE

The master bathroom before the renovation, was small and cramped, and the existing shower -- strangely -- had two separate entry doors:  the one seen here and another on the opposite side, opening onto a guest bathrom.

Bathroom, AFTER

The renovated and expanded master bath has a positively spa-like feel with marble tile floors, plenty of dressing space and dual vanities. 

Bathroom, AFTER

The new shower is nothing short of luxurious with Carrera marble tile, corner bench and glass door and partition.

Bathroom, AFTER

The bathroom is brightly illuminated with natural light from the windows in addition to ambient overhead and vanity lighting.

Bathroom, AFTER

This master bathroom, designed by Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines, features abundant storage in beautiful, built-in drawers.

Bathroom Detail, AFTER

Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines chose this simple tray to serve as a soap dish in this bathroom, adding an elegant but practical touch.

Master Bedroom, BEFORE

The size of the master bedroom was adequate, but the homeowners wanted something bigger. Joanna suggested taking out a wall and expanding the footprint of the bedroom, essentially turning two bedrooms into a single master suite.

Master Bedroom, AFTER

The new master is painted in soft gray and decorated with blue and purple accents. The window treatments employ both wood shutters and drapes, and the wood bed frame is painted in white and given a lightly distressed finish.

Master Bedroom, AFTER

The accessories in this master bedroom designed by Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines complement the shabby chic headboard.

Master Bedroom Detail, AFTER

Chip and Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper chose a rustic wood armoire, large mirror as the base for the bedroom nook. Simple vases and old books complete the look.

Home Exterior, AFTER

The newly renovated home features natural gray stone and wood treatments for the exterior -- themes that are repeated inside with the new stone fireplace and wood beams. Other improvements include new balcony railing and the addition of a new enclosed garage.

Craftsman Charmer

Chip and Joanna transformed and updated this home's exterior with fresh paint, natural wood support beams, porch railings and a new fence.  

Happily Married Spaces

Formerly separated and cramped spaces, like the home's kitchen and dining room, are now combined to form a living space with lots of breathing room. 

Enhancing the Flow

Continuing the theme of freeing up spaces, the living room now merges directly into the dining area, separated only by a newly freestanding fireplace.

Airy and Rustic

For the Batson's newly remodeled master bedroom, light gray-blue wall paint and white molding offset dark hardwood floors, natural wood ceiling and antique leaded-glass windows that the homeowners discovered at a salvage store.  

Words From the Heart

A favorite quote etched in script on sheet metal is a focal and thematic highlight in the newly remodeled master bath.

Meet the New Homeowners

Kimberly and Blake Batson, newlyweds and owners of the Common Grounds coffee shop, wanted a home with charm, a yard, trees and -- importantly -- a short commute to work. Their budget: $120,000.

The Dream Team

As always, Chip and Joanna bring a healthy dose of inspiration and energy as they unlock hidden potential in yet another home reno.

Before

Scruffy, overgrown and looking neglected, this small home nevertheless offers solid bones and a blank slate for an imaginative reno.

After

Cool slate-blue exterior with white trim, new porch railing and warm wood accents make for a striking redress for the home's exterior.

Front Exterior, AFTER

The beautifully refurbished wooden front door, flanked by black sconces and a pair of oversized planters, is a definite curb-appeal booster.

Front Exterior, AFTER

Kitchen, AFTER

Industrial-look shelving made from plumbing pipes and reclaimed wood offers plenty of open storage above the cabinets.

Kitchen, AFTER

Shiplap wood was employed as paneling in the kitchen as well as elsewhere throughout the house. White subway tile with dark grout offers an eye-pleasing contrast.

Kitchen, AFTER

Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines used plumbing pipes and wood planks to create industrial-style open shelving that is perfectly at home in this rustic farmhouse kitchen. The shelving blends well with the shiplap paneling feature wall, island made from vintage wood and wood-trimmed range hood. Elegant white subway tile and cabinets and gray quartzite countertops balance the rusticity of the space.

Kitchen Detail, AFTER

Quartzite countertops, under-mount sink, and contemporary faucet bring a utilitarian yet modern aesthetic to the new kitchen.

The Big Picture

Chip and Joanna expanded the kitchen entryway by cutting a wide archway, making both the kitchen and the dining room feel larger. Twin modern-industrial style chandeliers illuminate the kitchen island and dining table.

Living Room, BEFORE

The existing living room was livable but visually bare and basic.

Living Room, AFTER

In the new space, natural-wood box awnings highlight the living room and dining room windows. Walls are painted in neutral gray while exposed shiplap is used on the lower walls in a creative alternative to wainscoting. 

Living Room, BEFORE

Living Room, AFTER

Removing a wall makes for a more comfortable flow between the living room and the dining room.  In the process of removing the wall, Chip uncovered the original fireplace and opted to retain it as a unique design element.

Living Room Bookshelves, BEFORE

Chip and Joanna decided to keep the existing built-ins, but take them visually in a new direction in the redesigned space.

Living Room Shelving, AFTER

The revamped shelves are backed with natural wood to tie visually with the shiplap wall treatment and wood awnings.

Meet the Harps

Fixer Upper aficionados will recognize the clients in this project. Clint Harp is the carpenter and furniture designer responsible for many of the one-of-a-kind furniture creations included in Chip and Jo's renovations, and he has appeared frequently throughout the series. He and his wife Kelly were in search of an affordable home in the community of Brook Oaks. The fixer-upper they took on was indicative not only of their creative vision but of their downright bravery.

Photo By: Sarah Wilson/Getty Images

Before the Renovation: "The Beast"

When Clint and Kelly Harp first laid eyes on the home's exterior, they thought Chip and Jo had sent them to the wrong address. "What really struck me first," said Clint, "were the bullet holes." The situation inside was even worse.

Before the Renovation

First Impressions:

  • Clint: "This is horrible."   Kelly: "It's pretty bad. It's so bad."
  • Joanna: "I feel like this is like a crime scene. I'm very scared of what I'm gonna find."
  • Chip: "It's got the essential three B's. It's big, it's butt-ugly and it's within their budget."

Before the Renovation

The kitchen had holes in the ceiling and in the floor, visible water damage, broken cabinets and ample evidence of rodent infestation.

Before the Renovation

Joanna summed up the state of the pre-renovation kitchen thus: "This is a little overwhelming. It's a lot overwhelming, actually."

Before the Renovation: The Walk-Through

Chip, Jo, Clint and Kelly explore the first floor to assess damage and get a feel for the scope of a potential renovation.

Before the Renovation: The Vision Thing

Though in an alarming state of disrepair, the house, which was built in 1913, has good bones, lots of room and potential for an impressive restoration. Joanna suggests reconfiguring the front room. "Make it really wide," she says, "so you can look into the breakfast nook. Make this room the grand thing that it once was in 1913."

Photo By: Sarah Wilson/Getty Images

It's Demo Day!

Once Clint and Kelly took the giant leap with the 1913 house, the real challenge for Chip and Joanna was about to begin. "This place not only needs a demo," said Chip, "it needs an exorcism." 

There are more behind-the-scenes pics from this episode. Be sure to also check out the companion gallery: "Tackling the Beast, Pt. 2 - Behind the Scenes."

Demo Day

Before

"The Pit" -- as Clint and Kelly first described the house -- was in need of a radical deep clean and complete overhaul. But it did have a few things going for it:  It was spacious, with more than 2700 square feet, five bedrooms and three baths. The asking price was only $15,000 (essentially the value of the lot alone), and the location was close to the Harps' shop and studio.

After

A complete overhaul was precisely what the exterior received with a new roof, enlarged windows, new paint and fresh landscaping. In the end, Clint and Kelly were able to negotiate a purchase price for the house of only $10,000 and used the remaining $100,000 of their total budget for the renovations.

Photo By: Sarah Wilson/Getty Images

Before

Prior to the renovation, the front deck, stairs and railing were unsafe and in serious disrepair.

After

Once bigger renovations like plumbing, electrical upgrades and new kitchen were finalized, Clint and Kelly opted to use some of their remaining budget for a front porch with new steps, railings and columns. The colonial style portico is in keeping with the home's original architecture.

Fixer Upper Hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines turned the once disastrous room into a bright, clean kitchen with new cabinets, wood floors, Carrera marble countertops and light gray paint with white trim. The old drop ceiling was removed, adding height to the room, and a wooden support beam was added. A subway tile backsplash, floating wood shelves, and stainless steel appliances were also installed.

One of the things on Kelly's wish list was a room done in tranquil blue. Her wish was granted in the form of this private getaway for reading and relaxing. The chandelier seen here is the companion piece to the one used in the dining room.

Mixing neutrals with a pop of color is kind of Joanna’s specialty, so it’s no surprise this simple black dress with a fun green scarf says Joanna all over it. And again, those boots. Where can I get a pair?

Spoiler Alert: Inspired Repurposing

One of the most dramatic challenges in this Fixer Upper makeover was what to do with the awkward and visually obtrusive atrium just inside the home's front entrance. Seen here after the renovation was complete, Joanna's creative vision helped turn an architectural eyesore into this indoor herb garden that also functions as a charming getaway for dining and entertaining.

Dining Almost Alfresco

The renovated living room includes this dining area featuring a rustic wooden dining table with metal-wrapped top, vintage-style metal chairs, a visually distinctive chandelier and a whole lot of natural light.

Living Room Reimagined

Wood beams, coffered ceiling and casually comfortable furnishings add character and warmth to this once barren and ordinary living room. 

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

Perfect Combo

Chip and Joanna Gaines are a dream team when it comes to reimagining what a home can be. With a background in construction, Chip is committed to rescuing run-down, distressed and just plain shabby properties. Joanna has artistic vision and a design aesthetic that blends sensible upgrades with a flair for incorporating elements that lean toward the natural, rustic and vintage. In this project, they turned a suburban stuck-in-the-'70s home into something imaginative and visually amazing.

Meet the Homeowners

Heath and Becky Ivy were in the market for a home at or below $300,000 that would be suitable for them and their two daughters. Their wish list included a master suite, space for a home office and a nice outdoor view.

BEFORE: A Very Brady Abode

The Ivys' first impression when they saw this home was that they had slipped back in time. They liked the location and the abundance of space, but the lines and layout of this home were straight out of the '70s.

AFTER: Fixed-Up and Fresh

For enhanced curb appeal, the new exterior paint color is more subdued and in keeping with the lush, green surroundings.

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

BEFORE: Bland Exterior

The house was built in 1973 and clearly had seen little updating since then. It's 3100 square feet, has four bedrooms, three baths and an attractive lake view from the back yard. The asking price was $250,000, leaving as much as $50,000 for renovation and improvement.

AFTER: Crisp, Clean Lines

A little landscaping love and the removal of the wide driveway provide the front yard with a new sense of space and the home exterior with a more welcoming facade. 

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

BEFORE: Awkward Entrance

The dated entryway came with yellow tile floor, mauve/pink carpeting on the stairs and '70s-era light fixtures. Visitors were greeted with a view into a glassed in atrium that made for a rather unusual first impression.

AFTER: Warm and Welcoming

In the remodeled foyer, hardwood replaces the tile floor and an industrial-look pendant light and updated metal bannisters are added. The front window to the atrium is now closed off and the entry hall is accented with a decorative console table.

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

BEFORE: Jungle Room?

With its yellowish walls, aging houseplants and river-rock floor, the aging atrium was a tad reminiscent of a glass cage in a zoo's reptile house.

AFTER: A Private Green Space

Embracing the light and openness of the space, but bringing in natural wood, a neutral palette, stone paver floor and a functioning herbarium, Joanna re-envisioned this formerly odd space, making it into a cozy getaway but retaining the outdoor vibe.

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

AFTER: Fresh Herbs Available

The once awkward atrium is now a bright and airy herb garden.

AFTER: An Airy Retreat

Located just off the informal dining area, the new indoor courtyard offers a private retreat for relaxing. And fresh herbs for cooking are now just a few steps from the kitchen.

Living Room, BEFORE: A Bad Dream in Mauve

Before the renovation, the main living area was dated, bland and sparsely furnished.

Living Room, AFTER: The Warmth of Wood

Joanna had decorative wooden beams installed, making the ceilings appear lower and the room feel cozier. She furnished the space using textures of natural wood, metal and soft, broken-in leather.

Living Room, BEFORE: Dead Space

The living room offered opportunity for plenty of natural light, but its dominant attributes prior to the reno were plain white walls and beige carpeting.
