As you can see, the owners were playing it fast and loose with the term "house." But the only way to go is up, right?
The most impressive part of the transformation: Adding a whole second story. Double the space, double the fun, right?
Chip and Jo gave this couple brand new pinewood floors, huge windows in the living room and what has to be the world's most adorable vintage fridge.
Now this is an appropriate moniker. The Shack started as not much more than a few beams and a whole bunch of paint chips.
And then, voilâ! An adorable farmhouse. The Gaines' left the footprint of the space the same, but added a vaulted ceiling.
The theme for the inside of The Shack is shiplap, shiplap and more shiplap. The kitchen boasts waterfall concrete and open shelving, so there isn't an inch of the place that isn't on-trend.
Before Chip and Jo got their hands on this house, it was anything but modern.
And after, it was less Grandma's place and more contemporary art museum.
Chip broke one of his cardinal rules by painting the bedroom's shiplap black, but it was clearly worth the risk.
Taking on a houseboat is a major challenge, but the Gaines' are nothing if not enterprising.
Welcome to the Donna June! Which boasts what we can only imagine is the nation's first floating shiplap. And fun fact: That dark siding isn't painted, but rather (purposefully) burned wood.
They added huge windows, raised the ceiling by over a foot and added adorable lighting and wall accents.
Can a barn be a comfortable living space for anyone but horses and cows? The answer is yes, if you put Chip and Jo on the job.
And, of course, if you turn it into a barndominium. The house skews European, with the kitchen on the second floor, but we think that's more fun anyway.
The gorgeous (and huge) living room is the clear winner for Best Room in the Barndominium.
