“Tarek originally bought it as a flip but then they decided to make it their new home," a rep for the couple tells PEOPLE.
But they’re not moving in just yet. Instead, they'll be combining their talents to give the home an HGTV-worthy makeover!
“It’s their first project together!" the source adds. "They have a lot they want to do with it and the house needs some work so they are going to continue to live in their current home until the new home is ready."

The pair showed off their new digs on El Moussa’s Instagram Stories on Tuesday, explaining that they’re starting to work with a designer to figure out the exact renovations they’ll need to do.
“This is basically the blank slate,” Young says in a video, waving her arms to show off the all-white kitchen area with hardwood floors.

The sneak peek continues on the rooftop, which El Moussa explains is “why we fell in love with this house.” The expansive outdoor space is decked out like another floor of the house, complete with stunning views overlooking the Pacific. “This is why we love this house: the ocean is right there,” the father-of-two adds.© Provided by People Tarek El Moussa/Instagram © Provided by People Tarek El Moussa/Instagram © Provided by People Tarek El Moussa/Instagram

Young then points out an existing fire pit that will be “going,” and another one that they will be fixing up. She also mentions that they’ll be adding a Jacuzzi in the corner, and that their bedroom — or “adult room” as she calls it with a laugh — will have a door that leads to the outdoor space.
El Moussa and Young currently live in a rental house in Newport Beach. They moved into the home in April after quickly selling El Moussa’s "bachelor dad" pad — the first home that he bought for himself and his kids after splitting from ex Christina Anstead. El Moussa and Anstead share daughter Taylor Reese, 9, and son Brayden James, 5.
“This is our in-between house until we build or find the perfect house,” El Moussa told PEOPLE at the time, noting that it would be a great, family-friendly location in the interim, especially since it’s just a block from the ocean. At the time, they said they planned on staying in the home for “at least a year."© Provided by People Grant Rivera/Apex Studios Tarek, Taylor, Brayden and Heather

El Moussa and Anstead split publicly in December 2016 and finalized their divorce in January 2018, though they continue to film Flip or Flop together. Christina and her new husband, Ant Anstead, also live in Newport Beach, and the kids split their time between the two houses.
Last month, Young told PeopleTV’s Reality Check that she and El Moussa have not yet selected a wedding date, but that they are planning on having their ceremony somewhere on the beach in California.© Provided by People Duke Images Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae Young
“We’re thinking within this next year,” she said during the episode. “So probably summer 2021."
Last week, Young shared in an Instagram post that she had found her dream wedding dress, and would be announcing the designer soon.
Seasons 1-3 of Selling Sunset are streaming now on Netflix. Flipping 101 w/ Tarek El Moussa returns to HGTV on September 17.

With the libraries shuttered, except for curbside pickup, Denver Public Library adult services librarian Heidi Young wanted to give people in the city a way to express their thoughts and emotions about COVID-19 and this brutal year. Inspired by Quaranzine, from the Arlington Public Library, Young decided to create a zine in which library staff and customers could reflect on these brutal times.
"For myself as a teenager and a young person being involved in the underground music scene back in Seattle, zines were circulated a lot in that circle," Young says. "I would trade zines with my friends and drop them off at independent bookstores."
Zines are DIY, homemade magazines often showcasing works by artists, writers, photographers, and other creatives. Young thought it would be the perfect way to give her coworkers an outlet.Related Stories

"We have a super creative and innovative staff, so I knew across the system we had to be creating and expressing ourselves while we can’t be at work like normal," says Young.

She took submissions of art, writing, comics, photography and even recipes — anything that can be put in two-dimensional format. The first edition of the zine, which she dubbed the Social Distanzine, comprises work entirely from the staff, but going forward the library will be taking submissions from the public.Marijuana Deals Near You
Young says that every piece of writing and every piece of artwork created in this past year is in some way touched by the pandemic, and zines are a good way to give people the ability to show their own experiences. She hopes this project captures how people are feeling right now and shows how different communities are responding to the pandemic.
"On a larger scale, while a lot of life has been shut down, creativity has flourished during this time," Young says. "I see creativity as a way to survive during times of uncertainty."
