Zen Bedroom

Oversized furniture dominates this couple's master bedroom, and the result is a cramped and uninviting space. These homeowners want a relaxing space that's calming after a hectic workday. The full-sized bed is replaced with a queen-sized platform bed faced with plank flooring. The planks are carried up the wall and onto the vaulted ceiling to make the headboard the focal point of the room. The unused window seat is ripped out to provide additional square footage. Dated shag carpet is replaced with soothing stone tiles for a zen-like feel. A TV is mounted on the wall and flanked with protruding niche boxes, and a console is built for TV components. Finally, the double-door entry is reduced to a single door and the bathroom door is replaced with opaque glass for a sleeker look.

Hearth of the Home

A young couple in search of a more chill space for entertaining and relaxing take Josh Temple up on his offer to transform their living and dining room into a connected, welcoming gathering spot for friends and family.

The new burner offers views from the front yard through to the back and includes a floor-to- ceiling leather tile face, inset TV, and a beefy hearth hugging the structure. The spacious new layout embraces people hubs like the bar cabinet with wraparound storage shelves, mirrored backsplash and wine fridge, a rustic dining table topped with patina'd metal framed in mix-and-match chairs, and accordion doors that beckon party-goers into the backyard. Add in custom multi-leveled bookshelves anchored by a sumptuous hardwood floor, and this Pacific Northwest space is set to heat up a lifetime of celebrations.

Atlanta's Nightclub Garage

Josh and the House Crashers gang find an Atlanta couple who need a place for the band to practice. One problem is the band is huge and another is right now there is only a two car garage for practice. This renovation begins with a complete demo of the lower floor of the home. After framing in a few new walls the space gets completely re-imagined to be a practice stage as well as a nightclub to hang out in and enjoy the music. The one of a kind custom touches include a bar and storage cabinets, album shelving, a dropped ceiling with light show built in, and huge decorative wall panels. There's also cork flooring, a gray and orange paint palette, an overhead projector with surround sound, all new lighting and furniture.
