Let’s look at the main locations to answer where is  Farmhouse Fixer Filmed? HGTV’s hit renovation series of 2021 Farmhouse Fixer featured innumerable centuries-old farmhouses to the audience during its 6 episode run. The show will be returning for a second season with the proficient duo of Jonathan Knight and Kristina Crestin soon. However, before moving on to the next chapter, it is extremely crucial for us to look back at all the remarkable farmhouse locations that became the focal point of this series.

A lot of series merely use settings and filming sites as the backdrop of their show’s content. Farmhouse Fixer, on the other hand, presents these locations as the very essence of the show. One could say that there would be no show if these places never existed.

That’s exactly what Jonathan Knight seeks to bring to the forefront with this show as well. Landscapes are like legacies for future generations. Nostalgic homely spaces like American farmhouses are the best examples in this case. They’re not only the picture-perfect representation of the humble roots of a family’s history but also envision the coming together of a community as a whole. Modern ways of life lack warm aspects like these. Farmhouse Fixer digs deep into the historic belonging of a place and bridges the generation gap by resuscitating these models of the old American life.

What is the Show About?

The very theme of the show is to revive unlivable locations. Ancient establishments that may have run down or gotten dilapidated over the centuries are the focus of this renovation series. The ultimate goal of the show makers is to initiate an extensive makeover of these places for them to serve as new living grounds. However, renovations are planned meticulously for the chosen place. The new layout shouldn’t deride it of its original charm. The interior design is reworked while keeping the foundational historicity and antiquity of the architecture is kept intact.
