Fixer Upper Goes Tiny: Joanna's Tips for Living Small, Stylishly
A pint-sized historic shotgun-style house gets the Fixer Upper treatment.
Downsizing, simplifying and even microhome living are having a moment, so it's no wonder that Chip and Joanna decided to try their hand at a small house makeover. Homeowners Jessie and Cameron Bell chose a 700-square-foot, shotgun-style home as their Fixer Upper. Chip and Jo's challenge? Make it magically fit all their essentials, with style to spare.
The crew opened up the space and added a loft, creating soaring 20-foot ceilings in the main living space and kitchen area. Luckily, there was room for an adorable mint green fridge. (Kitchen goals!)
Here, Joanna reveals her biggest challenges with this pint-sized space:
