What happened to the Matsumoto family from “Fixer Upper”?

Michael and his wife, Jessie Matsumoto, moved from Los Angeles to Texas with children Rowan and Finley in search of a nice family home. Chip and Joanna got to work transforming a small cabin on a prairie in Crawford, Texas into a beautiful farmhouse in March 2017. The $12,500 price tag and surrounding land attracted the Matsumotos to the property.

The episode marked one of the biggest transformations Chip and Joanna have ever made. The original structure was completely falling apart, with decaying walls, battered floors and crumbling ceilings. With plans to add some structural additions to the home, the couple, who share children Drake, Ella Rose, Duke, Emmie Kay and Crew, knew they had a lot of work ahead of them.

Chip and Joanna were initially shocked by the original condition of the property the Matsumotos purchased.

“We couldn’t believe it when the Matsumotos chose this old cabin as their home,” Joanna admitted in a blog post. “The style of the Matsumotos is an industrial farmhouse, so every detail of the house is a traditional touch.”

The designer duo wowed clients with the open floor plan, outdoor dining area, and custom creations crafted by a beloved metal artist Jimmy Don.

“I loved how this unique take on the classic farmhouse look took beloved details like the strapping, concrete countertops and repurposed wood to a new level, and it fits the needs of this sweet family perfectly. “, Joanna said of the finished project.

Where is the Matsumoto family now?

The couple have welcomed two more children, twins Oliver and Olivia, since filming Upper fixator. In November 2018, Michael and Jessie decided to rent the house on Airbnb. Eventually, they put the property on the market in the summer of 2019 for $400,000. Their decision to move was based on their proximity to Waco, Texas, where they traveled for most of their work.

“We just like the idea of ​​a family being there,” the father-of-four said Today.com in July 2019 from the sale of the mas.

The house is still listed on Airbnb under the name Matsumoto Farm, touted as the “perfect retreat” that is “ideal for entertaining family and friends”.
