The Gaines have been pretty busy between running the Magnolia Network and working on major renovations such as Fixer Upper: The Castle. They first made their marks in 2013 when Fixer Upper premiered on HGTV, fast forward a decade, and they are now well-known faces in the world of home renovations.

It’s definitely been exciting to see what Chip and Joanna Gaines have been able to create over the years, especially since they’ve been around for so long. They have also been keeping fans updated on certain renovations, as Joanna gave an inside look at their big castle fixer-upper in Waco. Of course, things haven’t always been easy for them as they’ve expanded their empire. For example, the Gaines’ previously had to pull a show due to controversy, however, it eventually was put back on the air.

Joanna Gaines opened up about doing the big reveals and how hard it is to still make it meaningful yet different. She also explained both the challenges and the rewards that come with taking on projects that have smaller budgets, saying:
While Chip and Joanna Gaines have been doing renovations since 2003, per HGTV, they are still going strong. However, there are always challenges to work through, but it seems like they are ready and willing to take them on as they come. With the few Fixer Upper spinoffs the couple has done, they’ve been able to reinvent the series every once in a while, while still keeping the tone of the show the same, and it seems to be working.
