Fixer Upper: The Carriage House at The Magnolia B&B

March 29, 2016

Chip and Joanna may be miracle workers but, between their home renovations, The Magnolia Market, The Silos and their new B&B, they can't do everything. So they recruited semi-retirees Rob and Marianne Ward as potential managers to run the bed and breakfast. First, though, they'd have to convince the Wards to move into the adjacent carriage house. And before that could happen, they'd have to undertake a major renovation on the carriage house itself.

Welcome to the Carriage House

Chip and Joanna had their work cut out for them in the restoration of this carriage house that sits adjacent to Magnolia House B&B. To get it into the shape seen here they'd have to contend with –among other things – termites, ants, asbestos and water damage.

Heart of the Home

An enlarged and updated kitchen becomes a family focal point in the new floor plan and a great place for the Wards to hang out with visiting grandchildren.

Salvaging History

The fireplace in the newly renovated living room was originally in the century-old building next door. It was salvaged, restored and repurposed for use in the carriage house. The newly relocated fireplace is topped off with an antique mantel and surround.
