But Joanna said one home was Chip’s dream renovation, though it was hard for her to see it through the same lens at first.

In 2019, Chip and Joanna purchased a castle in Waco, Texas.

Though the home’s build started way back in 1890, it wasn’t completed until 1913.

That’s when it was transformed and modeled after a real castle.

In a 2019 note from the Magnolia Journal, Joanna wrote, “Chip and I have a long history of taking on unusual projects.”

“Since early in our marriage, Chip has dreamed of restoring one place in particular near downtown Waco,” she added.

Joanna recalled the first time she saw it, and how her husband lit up.

She noted, “I knew in that instant that this place had found its way into his heart.”
