We’ve loved watching Chip and Joanna Gaines work their magic on HGTV’s Fixer Upper. But even the biggest fan knows these HGTV stars have to stick to a script. Whether it’s shiplap walls, unexpected expenses, or adorable antics on Chip’s part, you can expect to see a few things over and over on just about every episode of Fixer Upper.
Ahead, check out some of the things that Chip and Joanna do with every fixer upper.
1. They look at houses that are surprisingly inexpensive
Each time Chip and Joanna take couples to look at houses they could buy, we’re surprised by the prices. The cost of living in Waco, Texas, is less than the national average, so the reasonable home prices probably shouldn’t surprise us. But every time a couple looks at a big house that costs less than $100,000, we get a little bit jealous.
