Where is 'Cheap Old Houses' filmed?

Ethan and Elizabeth visit two homes by the end of each episode. Then, they decide which one will get the spotlight on their Instagram and share their "own vision for the house" if they get the chance to renovate it.

Plus, the show also uses 3D imaging to help viewers take in the full extent of each house's transformation.

How did the Cheap Old Houses Instagram account get started?

According to HGTV, Ethan and Elizabeth started their popular Instagram account back in 2016. While neither of them are realtors, Elizabeth has a Master's degree in historical preservation and Ethan has marketing experience. Combined, their skills allowed the Cheap Old Houses page to reach millions of people, and their mutual love for "historic" real estate and "nostalgia-inducing old buildings" has even brought the couple closer together.
