All across the country, people have been flipping homes and making money. Here are 15 Of The Best House Flips Reported by “Fixer Upper”



Chip and Joanna Gaines have done some of the best home renovations we’ve ever seen. The two have taken their incredible talent for finding dilapidated houses and flipping them into amazing homes. And although rumors spread about Joanna leaving HGTV, she was quick to shut them down saying she’s staying put. Fans are happier than ever to hear that she’s not leaving, so we found some of the best flips from HGTV’s ‘Fixer Upper’ from the past few seasons to celebrate our appreciation for the show.

Small-Town House – Part 1

During season 3 of the show, Chip and Joanna performed a makeover on this small-town house in Hillsboro, Texas that was built in the early 1920s. The home was spacious enough for the owner’s family that was subsequently growing, but it needed a major facelift. The stylish transformation is one of the best from any season, and the kitchen is probably the best part of the house now.

Home On The River – Part 1

 During the second season of ‘Fixer Upper’, they took on “the house on the river” for a charismatic family of nine. The owners wanted enough space to host all of their children, but also have the home feel somewhat like a retreat. Joanna and Chip turned this ancient home into a refreshed new space with lots of breathing room. The best part has to be the new and improved garage.

The Barn Home – Part 1

The barn home featured in the third season of ‘Fixer Upper’ is one of the show’s most unique projects, according to some viewers. The barn, which sits just outside the town of Waco, Texas, was transformed into a 2,700-square-foot house with an incredible dining area, that’s the favorite area of the house.

Faceless Bunker – Part 1

In season 2 on the show, the owners of the “faceless bunker” home had lived on an island most of their lives and wanted their new home to have more of a beach-vibe feel to it. Chip and Joanna gave them just what they wanted and turned it into a little slice of paradise. The most dramatic change the viewers saw in the episode was when they renovated the convoluted staircase.

Little House On The Prairie – Part 1

This home renovation is our favorite on the list. In the first episode of season 2, Joanna and Chip worked with two local coffee shop owners to give their home a complete makeover. The young couple wanted to keep the character of their home but include a more modern design. From the stunning blue paint job on the outside of the home to the wooden oven hood in the kitchen, the renovation was just what the owners were looking for, and they are as happy as ever in their new home.
