Season 2, Episode 5

First Time Buyers Take a Chance on a Vintage Fixer Upper

Chip and Joanna Gaines take Kelsey and Trip Purks on a tour through three classic homes in the historic Dean Highland neighborhood of Waco, Texas. The Purks have been renting for three years and are now ready to buy their own little piece of Texas. They'd like to avoid a cookie cutter home preferring an older home with lots of character but with the opportunity to make their own mark. They're looking for an open floor plan with a big kitchen in a neighborhood lined with big trees, wide sidewalks, and quiet roads located close to downtown. Their biggest fear is getting in over their heads with a historic home that may have lots of hidden costs. Will they choose the 1920's cottage with lots of character but only one bathroom, the 1940s 'Dutch Door House' with the foundation issues, or the 1930s timeless brick Tudor with the hobbit-like front door? The Gaines have their work cut out for them with these historic wonders that are plagued with old age issues. Will the Purks' fears be realized when they face pricey repairs on their vintage fixer upper?
