Chip and Joanna Gaines haven’t let any moss grow under their feet since quitting their crazy-popular HGTV show “Fixer Upper” last year. I can’t even keep up with all of the projects they’ve tackled, from writing a children’s book to announcing an entire cable-TV network they’ve got in the works.
And that’s not even mentioning the fact that they had a baby boy named Crew last summer!
In her “spare time,” Joanna managed to design the interiors for this modern farmhouse-style home in China Spring, Texas. It’s on the market, so let’s take a look.

The entry has Joanna’s signature double glass doors and shiplap on the walls:
Antique wood sidelights mark the entrance to the dining room:
There’s a mix of farmhouse and industrial style in the kitchen, with custom metal shelves above the range:
For a recent post on her blog, Joanna used these shelves to demonstrate ideas for styling them:
The Breakfast Nook has a Built-in Bench and Storage:
This is what Joanna posted on her Facebook page about it:

Have you seen the “Shiplap” t-shirts Joanna made popular?
We faked the look of shiplap in my son’s bedroom a few years ago and I still love the way it looks in there.
You can see how we did it here:
There’s a covered porch on the back of the house:
The book Joanna and her kids wrote together is called We Are the Gardeners:
There’s plenty of space in the backyard of this house for a garden — or two!
Remember when this house from “Fixer Upper” was wrecked by a drunk driver?
I recently heard from the new owner of the “Three Little Pigs House,” and he says the house looks great now:
“I love it here. The neighborhood is quiet and there have been no problems.”
Happy to hear that! You can read more about what happened to it and see the before and after pics here.
When “Fixer Upper” was on HGTV I got a lot of questions from readers about it. I answered them here:
Since we saw them fixing up older houses on the show, it’s interesting to see the choices Joanna made when building new:
It definitely has that Chip and Joanna “Fixer Upper” style. They’re asking $624,000 for the modern farmhouse in China Spring, Texas. Update: I just learned that they purchased the floor plan from another designer and built it, but Joanna did the interior design aspect (thanks, Jason!).
