Homeowners who appeared on the TV show “Fixer Upper” are cashing in on the success of the HGTV program.

“Shotgun House,” which appeared on a season-three episode of “Fixer Upper” in March 2016, was bought for $28,000 and renovated by cohosts Joanna and Chip Gaines, according to Curbed. The one-bedroom property in Waco, Texas, has now been put on the market for $950,000 by its owners. It’s 1,050 square feet and listed with Briggs Freeman.

The Gaines have been fixing up dilapidated homes in Waco since November 2015 and now have a cult following. The show has become such a hit that it has transformed the town of Waco into a full-fledged tourist destination.

This means many of the “Fixer Upper” homeowners are renting their houses out on Airbnb and taking advantage of its popularity.

Take a look around the incredible and miniature Shotgun House:

This compact, one-bedroom home, known as “Shotgun House,” appeared on season three of the TV show.

Cameron and Jessie Bell originally bought the house for $28,000. It’s now being listed with Briggs Freeman for $950,000.

The couple currently lists the house on Airbnb for $325 a night, excluding tax and service fees. The house has one bedroom and a queen sofa bed, sleeping four people in total.

When you walk in, you’re in an open-plan living area.

There’s an attached kitchen.

The master bedroom, decorated by Joanna Gaines, is behind the kitchen.

To create extra living space, the Gaines added a loft, accessed by a ship-ladder staircase.

The loft is currently used for extra seating and office space.

There is a large outdoor area with a fire pit and seating.
