Updating raised ranch facade
Jason Cameron comes to this belle's rescue with kicky paint colors, a bluestone patio to replace the crumbling concrete and a cast-stone fountain.
The weedy beds are given a tropical makeover with dwarf pygmy date palms and striped stromanthe that tie in with the home's new color palette.
John learned that the home had been white since its construction (120 years ago!
) so in keeping with true Victorian style, he chose no less than seven paint colors to really make this painted lady the neighborhood showstopper.
The terracotta tile steps and board-and-batten siding also receive a makeover with fresh coats of warm, neutral paint.
Fixer Upper's Chip and Jo pulled off a big update for minimal effort with just a few swaps.
A low stacked stone wall and new landscaping soften up the façade.The front yard is replaced by a circular stone courtyard surrounded by hardy ferns, petunias and banana plants.Built in 1959, this midcentury modern rancher isn’t the typical candidate for a makeover in Fixer Upper Chip and Jo’s signature farmhouse style but the home’s location and size won over the homeowners.Dubbed “the cargo ship house” by Fixer Upper’s Chip Gaines, this long, gray and bland exterior was certainly short on charm.The ranch-style brick portion was originally built in 1958 with the wood-clad second story tacked on as a later addition. Chip and Joanna dramatically took this home from sad to stately with a porch bump-out that features post-and-beam construction, horizontal railing and a flagstone porch and stairs.
