Chip and Joanna Gaines have opened the doors to their biggest project to date. The Fixer Upper stars renovated a nineteenth-century castle (known as “Cottonland Castle”) in Waco, Texas—and fans can step inside through October 29, 2022.
Magnolia gave fans a look at the exterior in an Instagram Reel on August 5, writing that Chip and Joanna began renovating the castle a year ago “to bring it back to life blending the past and present, beauty and functionality, sophistication and charm into the design.”
The Magnolia co-founders purchased the Cottonland Castle property back in 2019. Joanna revealed in the 2019 winter issue of Magnolia Journal that Chip had had his eye on the property for a long time before they finally bought it.
“Chip saw the beauty and potential in this place years earlier than I did, but he never gave up, and because of that, we now get to make this castle beautiful again,” she penned.
Joanna acknowledged at the time that the fixer-upper was “unlike any other we’ve ever tackled.” While they didn’t have “the slightest idea of what” it would become, The Stories We Tell author wrote that “what Chip did know all along, deep in his bones, and what I have learned to see too, is this: If you look past the cracks in the masonry, past the rotted floorboards, past the wilderness taking over the backyard, there is a lot of beauty to be found in this old castle.”
If you can’t make it out to Waco to see Chip and Joanna’s property in-person yourself, then you can still tune into the historic castle’s renovation this fall. Fixer Upper: The Castle premieres Friday, October 14 at 9 p.m. ET on Magnolia Network, HBO Max and discovery+.
