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. The homeowners are left speechless and the band gets together to celebrate this gigantic, hip new night spot on the Atlanta scene.
