If you’re a fan of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper,” you probably remember Clint Harp, one of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ go-to craftsman for custom pieces for their clients. Obviously we know that Clint is a man of many talents– but now, he’s putting out his very own book this fall and we cannot wait to get our hands on it.
“I’ve wanted to write a book since high school, and that dream is now a reality,” Clint shared on his Instagram. “For the last 4 months my wife (Kelly) and my team (Harp Design Co.) have allowed me to step away from the shop for great lengths of time so that I could do just that. It’s been a work in progress for almost two years now and I’m so excited to let you guys know that Handcrafted will come out this fall!”
I’ve wanted to write a book since high school, and that dream is now a reality! For the last 4 months my wife @kellygharp and my team @harpdesignco have allowed me to step away from the shop for great lengths of time so that I could do just that. It’s been a work in progress for almost two years now and I’m so excited to let you guys know that #Handcraftedbook will come out this fall. It’s available for pre-order now on #Amazon (although without a book cover photo…but that’s coming soon!)…the link is in my profile! Thank you guys so much for your support! @touchstonebooks 📸: @kristincrawfordphoto #lovebuildrun
The book is described as part memoir and part manual– but it will give a behind-the-scenes look at how Clint got into carpentry and how he ended up on “Fixer Upper.”
“Spanning Clint’s remarkable journey—from a childhood learning carpentry and hard work at his grandfather’s knee, through his struggles to balance pursuing his dreams with supporting his family, to his partnership with Chip and Joanna Gaines and the many adventures and misadventures of filming Fixer Upper—Handcrafted is part memoir and part manual for dreamers,” the book description states.
Few other details about the book have been released other than that– but it’s not stopping fans from putting in their preorders to make sure they get a copy when it comes out in the fall. In fact, the book, despite not having a cover or many details on Amazon, is no. 1 in the Carpentry category. You can preorder your own copy here, and be sure to watch Clint throughout the final season of “Fixer Upper” on Tuesday’s on HGTV!
