Plot Synopsis

With the help of Chip and Joanna Gaines, Texas home buyers purchase fixer uppers that are transformed into their dream homes. In each 60-minute episode, Chip and Joanna show a couple three homes in their price range, help them through the purchase process, and then spend 30 days designing, rebuilding and decorating their new house. On Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 8pm ET, HGTV aired the pilot episode of FIXER UPPER, featuring Doug and Lacy looking for a home in the expensive Castle Heights neighborhood of Waco, Texas. Eleven months later, HGTV aired the official series premiere of FIXER UPPER on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 11pm ET/PT, showing Joanna and Chip introduce their clients, Charmaine and Chuck, to the historic Sanger Heights neighborhood, where many of the homes are either vacant or dilapidated.

In the Season 2 opener, "Coffeehouse Owners Seek Home With Short Commute," Chip and Joanna help newlyweds in who own a coffee shop in Waco, Texas, asking for help finding a home close to their business and that won't break their budget limit of $120,000.
