Our favorite “First Couple of Renovation” Chip and Joanna Gaines of the widely popular “Fixer Upper” series came to Houston Sunday, Oct. 29th to help 81-year-old Doris Davis rebuild her home. The Gaineses are partnering with ExxonMobil and Rebuilding Together Houston to join forces in renovating Davis’ home that was flooded during Hurricane Harvey.

According to abc13.com who was there to witness the meeting between the “Fixer Upper” couple and Davis shared, she “was moved to tears as dozens of volunteers arrived to help rebuild her home damaged during Hurricane Harvey.

As the weather was unusually cold this bright Sunday morning, it didn’t keep the over 60 volunteers and the Gaineses from rolling up their sleeves ready to tackle the job of restoring the home of 81-year-old Davis affected by the storm.

With live footage shared throughout the day on ExxonMobil’s social media, you were able to see updates on the meeting between Davis and the Gaineses, along with photos of the inside of her home before the renovation begins, and an interview with the “Fixer Upper” couple.

ExxonMobil tweeted, “So excited to get started on our #RebuildingOurBackyard reno with @RebuildingHou @chipgaines @joannagaines. Chip Gaines sent out the following tweet, “Here teaming up with @rebuildinghou and @exxonmobil for some reno and to do some good close to home.”

“Rebuilding Together Houston (RTH) is a core services organization that provides home repairs and modifications at no cost to low-income homeowners in Houston/Harris County” according to its Facebook page.

The finished home is sure to be just as amazing as those we marvel at on their “Fixer Upper” series. Follow ExxonMobil and Rebuilding Together Houston as they share updates on the renovation of Davis’ home.
