Jeff and Michelle Sanders loved the home they raised their two children in but were tired of being so far from friends and work. They called upon the hosts of HGTV's Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna Gaines, to help them get their perfect home in the perfect location.
For this project in Texas, Chip and Joanna Gaines, hosts of HGTV's Fixer Upper, knew they had an opportunity to change someone's life for the better. A new home would not only put this single mom in an area near loved ones but also would allow her and her son the opportunity to grow together and create new memories.
"I wanted to surprise JoJo with a bold backsplash at a flip property," Chip Haines, co-host of HGTV's Fixer Upper says of his wife and co-host Joanna. "It took me all day to install this beautiful tumbled-stone backsplash, but when I went to grout it...it soaked up the color and turned maroon. It was horrible, and JoJo was surprised to say the least."
Joanna and Chip Gaines, hosts of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, have been flipping, remodeling and fixing up homes together for the past 12 years as owners of Magnolia Homes in Waco, Texas. They have worked on more than 100 homes together, combining Chip's great instinct on real estate and Joanna's unique eye for design.
Before he met wife and co-host Joanna, Chip Gaines of HGTV's Fixer Upper partnered with his parents to buy his first flip property while still in college. "After that I was hooked," Chip says. "I started buying and selling homes and commercial properties."
