As for where Ty actually lives, he has his wife Kellee Merrell renovated an 1853 Savannah, Ga. home that took the couple years to restore, according to People.

About the process, the star let fans in on a little secret via his Instagram, writing in part, "Just want to put things into perspective. I know TV renovations can leave people feeling frustrated when their own projects don’t move as quickly. TV renovations are like unicorns and while they are amazing, it’s just not realistic for most people. So if you’re currently deep in the renovation trenches, know we are right there with you."

The good news? According to Ty, it's "worth it."
