Chip and Joanna Gaines Transformed This Old Shack into a Dream Farmhouse


How far would you go to get a stunning home from HGTV Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines? On the series' season finale, one family took a risky bet in order to make their dreams come true.

Michael Matsumoto, the executive producer of Fixer Upper, and his wife, Jessie, opted to buy a $12,000 shack in hopes that the Fixer Upper stars, Joanna and Chip Gaines, could give it a complete makeover. Although the couple is known for making home renovation miracles, this one seemed pretty much impossible.

Of course, with a lot of hard work and design magic, the run down ranch was transformed into a stunning and sleek farmhouse. In fact, it kind of looks like a smaller version of Chip and Joanna's own Waco, Texas home.


Can you believe this is even the same house? Of course, the duo and their crew had to pretty much rebuild everything from the ground up. New walls, roof, front porch and stunning windows make the home stand out.


Inside, Joanna mixed her rustic farmhouse style with some sleek modern elements. Funky geometric patterns sit perfectly alongside the vintage accessories.


The back porch features the perfect spot to grow some herbs. Plus, there's plenty of space to accommodate their whole family. In fact, the Matsumotos found out they were expecting twins at the end of the project!

Congrats to the happy homeowners who definitely got plenty of bang for their buck.
