Once Upon A Time in Hollywood

Coming Attractions. As we reported earlier, HGTV's most high-profile twins Drew and Jonathan Scott are set to go full-on Hollywood in the latest chapter in their epic and ongoing battle of wits, endurance, subterfuge and renovation/design chops — the perennial sibling grudge match known as Brother Vs. Brother. The time is nigh. Buckle up. The gloves are about to come off.

This ain't no disco; And it ain't no country club either;
This is L.A.
—Sheryl Crow, "All I Wanna Do"

Home Turf Advantage?

The backdrop for this competition: Two vintage but aesthetically challenged mansions will undergo major repairs and upgrades to transform them into neighborhood showpieces, with each brother responsible for all phases of the remodeling of one of the homes. This year there's a bonus familial subtext as the competition this time around takes place in LA's historic Hancock Park — the neighborhood where brother Drew and his bride Linda make their home in a renovated historic house of their own.

Heavy Metal

As renovations and prep get underway, Drew offers evidence that he means business, getting creative with some industrial tools and hardware.

Armed and Dangerous

Jonathan stylishly sports a burgundy Henley and one of his most serious tool belts as work gets underway on his project house.

Local Flavor

Drew and Jonathan partake in some local food-truck cuisine when an ice cream truck inexplicably appears at the work site.

We could probably have predicted where this was headed.

Sequestered Space

Drew works in a secret loft that will be integrated as part of an upstairs kid's bedroom.

Material Selections

Jonathan checks out wood samples for shelves and paneling for a newly redesigned closet in his project home.

Something is happening here, but we don't know what it is.

Team-Drew House, Before

The entryway before renovations of the Team Drew house begin.

Team-Drew House, Before

The traditional parlor in Drew's house is highlighted by an impressive staircase and landing. Both spaces offer an excellent opportunity for some creative design embellishments.

Team-Drew House, Before

The massive living room offers another space with potential for an elegant re-imagining.

The dining room features an impressive fireplace and curved-vault ceiling.

The main kitchen in Drew's house (yes, the main kitchen) is not your standard-fare kitchen space and offers a blank slate for something truly spectacular.

Team-Jonathan House, Before

The living room in Jonathan's project house comes with wood flooring and a sizable fireplace.

The dining room could perhaps use some new window treatments, among other things.

Like the dining room, the kitchen is somewhat overdue for a modern upgrade.

This space just off the kitchen previously served as a dedicated wine room.

Xtreme Woodworking

The wood floors in the living room of Jonathan's house were worn and damaged. Away with them!

Fire and Steel

Despite what it may look like, this is not from an opening montage for Game of Thrones. Drew uses a grinder to cut a rebar as he removes the fireplace's outer hearth.

Feature Enhancements

In the latter stages of the renovations, Jonathan works on the custom vanity in the main-floor powder room of his project house.

Feature Enhancements

Drew works on installation of a custom bathtub int upstairs kids' bathroom of his project home.
