You’re familiar with that idle fantasy you experience after watching too many HGTV programs. I mean, I totally could flip houses. Not that difficult, surely.

Alum of Teen Mom 2? Cole DeBoer and Chelsea Houska are standing by your side.

“Even when we first got together, we would binge Fixer Upper and all those shows and I was like, ‘This is so fun,'” Chelsea recalled to the news in an exclusive interview. “And I’d always look at houses, like, ‘Ooh, we could fix that up.'”

Then they did tap into their inner builders, supervising the construction of their South Dakota dream home: a sleek black farmhouse with a design philosophy that embraces the notion that there is never enough statement-making wallpaper. And, Cole mused, “Many people were drawn to it, so we thought perhaps there was something there. People seem to like what we’re doing, and we are really enjoying this, so let’s keep going.”

They soon started their own design company, working with customers to update their homes. And before they knew it, they were announcing to other passengers at the Dallas airport that the launch of their HGTV show Down Home Fab is on January 16 at 9 p.m.

While preparing to board a flight, they were approached by fans bemoaning their two-year absence from television screens “I say, “Wait! You must watch our new show, which we now have!” Cole fessed up. He’ll say, “Our show airs in five days, at this time,” said Chelsea, “and we’re just so proud of it.”

And although though the businesswoman, who is also the mother to Aubree, 13, Watson, 5, Layne, 4, and Walker, 23, genuinely loves her 10 seasons of the Teen Mom series, she freely acknowledges that “if I’m being honest,” “we would never be like, ‘Watch Teen Mom on Tuesday!'”

Naturally, she gets to create feature walls out of peel-and-stick wallpaper and a few pieces of wood in her new series, and she gets to choose the carpeting with the antelope design she wants for her ideal family room. And she never once has to bring up her ex-high school boyfriend.

“It got to the point where it was like, it didn’t feel authentic to our life anymore,” Chelsea explained of spending scene after scene on Teen Mom 2, ahead of their 2020 exit, detailing her ongoing struggle to establish any sort of co-parenting relationship with Aubree’s dad, Adam Lind. “Because that wasn’t really our life anymore.”

Cole, I concur “Why should we have to do it constantly on camera when we never discussed that stuff at home? We had had enough.”

Now that they can share a very authentic picture of their daily lives on the farm, where Cole works on projects like creating a playhouse replica for the children, they are better prepared to make their case for the dad of the year awards.

“If we were going to come back to TV, I wanted it to be something lighthearted, feel good and be able to show our authentic selves,” Chelsea noted, sharing why this move felt “so right.” As she put it, “This was just such a cool opportunity to do that.”

And if Chip and Joanna are coming to mind, you’re not mistaken: With a little less shiplap and slightly darker woodwork, the DeBoers provide a Midwest adaptation of the Gaines family.

Being a huge Fixer-Upper fan, Chelsea is more than happy to make the comparison. The biggest praise we could receive, she said, “is probably from Chip and Joanna.” Because it’s goals, sort of.

And although they would be thrilled to chat with anyone in the HGTV world, her husband said, “For now, we just want to be accepted.”

The couple is eager to display their own rom-com-worthy romance, which started in 2014 with the expected first date—at a gas station, of all places. (They exchanged glances while filling up at nearby pumps, but they remained silent because, well, you know how these things happen.)

“I like that we’re able to focus on us and show our personalities more,” shared Chelsea. “People obviously knew us from the show, but this is just another side. It’s lighthearted, which we tend to be. We like to find the fun in literally any situation no matter what it is.”

And in case you were wondering, it hasn’t altered since they began working together nonstop.
