Amanda and Chris live in Austin, Texas — East Austin, to be specific. They are right down the street from Franklin BBQ and East Side Pies, local favorites. The house isn't just cool because of its proximity to the hippest restaurants, though; it's also a historic landmark. Their home is known as the Sallie Johnson House, named after Sallie Johnson who was a freed slave and who built the home in the 1920s. They carefully renovated the house to modernize it for comfort and to respect the natural beauty and history of the home's architecture.
