Chip and Joanna Gaines Teamed Up with Tim Tebow to Design This Home for a Family in Need

Posted on


Chip and Jo — and Tim Tebow! 

Touchdown! Chip and Joanna Gaines just designed a winning home for a sweet family in need. With help from former football champ Tim Tebow, the Fixer Upper stars remodeled an outdated Waco, Texas, abode and transform it into an Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant retreat for Melissa and Jody Copp and their two sons, Calan, 9, and Lawson, 5, who are both wheelchair users.

Light and Bright

The HGTV hosts — who recently announced they are expecting their fifth child — worked their magic on the facade, substituting the formerly dark brick for a gray shingled look. The couple also built a long driveway for the homeowners so they could easily pull up to the front door with their boys.

Custom Build

Gray cabinets and a spacious blue-painted island showcase Joanna’s signature style. An extended table built by the Gaineses’ go-to carpenter, Clint Harp, serves as the perfect spot for Calan and Lawson to sit while their parents whip up dinner.

All in the Details

Chip discovered these diamond-paned windows and installed them in between the living room and entryway. A black lantern-style light fixture adds a touch of elegance to the welcoming space.

Dream Room

Calan and Lawson’s rooms mirror each other in design, and boast a wall of toys — including plenty of the stackable blocks they both love.

Super Stations

Side-by-side desk stations are a cozy spot for the two boys to draw or do homework.

Unbelievable Backyard

Tebow’s charitable organization, the Tim Tebow Foundation, synced up with Chip and Joanna to redo the house, but Make a Wish also stepped in to help transform the backyard into the ultimate play zone.

Game On

Now the boys can race on the race track, enjoy games in their play house, and challenge each other to supersize backyard soccer matches.
