HGTV Update

It has been a few weeks since the Pilot aired for HGTV. We weren’t given a time frame on when we would hear back from the network on whether or not we got the show. So we waited a week, and then another week, and then as the weeks went by we honestly stopped thinking about it.

Well, we finally heard from our producer and we were absolutely shocked when he told us that HGTV wanted 12 more episodes of Fixer Upper. We couldn’t believe what we were hearing as they went into detail about the ratings and the nationwide response. It’s been two weeks since we found out (we couldn’t go public about it until now) and it still hasn’t set in. All I know is that it’s going to be exciting, crazy, and an adventure like no other. We are going to need a lot of prayer as we juggle our family, our business, and the show for the next few months!



I forgot what it was like with all this going on. We are going to have to get used to this again…



Here are the details, we start at the end of August and complete filming in March 2014. We will be renovating 12 homes in Waco and the surrounding communities, Dallas/Ft Worth, and Austin. The network is about to put out a casting call for these locations. If you or anyone you know is looking to buy a fixer upper in these areas, please tell them to contact us at We would love to be a part of your renovation!

I can’t wait to share in this journey with you on my blog! Stay tuned for more details coming soon…

    Stumbled on to your show yesterday on HGTV. Loved the inspirational design ideas, but even better was the positive energy and low drama style. Way to go! Hope there is more to come.

    Love your show! Don’t think there’s ever been a series like this where I’ve watched reruns! Keep doing what you’re doing.

    My family and I LOVE sitting down and watching your show together, actually we watch them over and over!! We recently bought 24 acres in Weatherford, TX that has 3 houses on it. They are all in dire need of a tear down or possible RENO!! They each have a lot of character and we would like to preserve what we can, and would be so grateful if you two would consider helping us with these fixer uppers!!! We live in Southern California and are looking to retire on this property when our youngest starts college. We love how you include your beautiful family and your own farm on the show, balancing work and family and always showing GOD’s grace in every show.

    I just discovered your show last week. I must say my favorite part of your show is the relationship with your husband. Don’t get me wrong, you do the best work! But your show makes me laugh and reminds me of the fun my husband and I have when we get the chance to work together. I thank you for your show, I just introduced it to my husband and he has taken to it like glue, “just as I knew he would, he loves the humor of your husband.” WE LOVE THE SHOW AND YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY.

    We love your show, I watch with my 7 yr old daughter , you have such a sweet family, something for the whole family to watch. I was wondering if you are selling season 1. I would love to gift it to my mom. Mom has cancer, and can’t afford cable service now. She loved watching hgtv, and I know she would love your show. I know episodes are available on Amazon. But, without internet service, this is not available. I searched for the DVD and couldn’t find. Could you please let me know? Thank you..and I can’t wait to watch the new episodes with my family.
