This Craftsman Home Was Ready to Crumble — See What It Looks Like Now!
A daring newlywed couple called on renovation miracle workers Chip and Joanna Gaines to completely transform this home.
Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you know that Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines are all about transforming the worst home on the best block. How bad was this house? Well, let's just say Chip nicknamed it "Three Little Pigs" — because a strong huff and puff might just blow it down — while showing the property to newlyweds Ken and Kelly Downs. The good news: The 100-year-old, Craftsman-style home had a price tag of just $35,000, leaving the Downs with a whopping $215,000 renovation budget. This is gonna be good, y'all.
Using a blue and navy palette with plenty of rustic charm, the Fixer Upper team transformed this property from the outside in, starting with the falling-down exterior.
Navy blue cabinetry and a rustic wood vent hood stand out from classic white subway tile.
