This funky family has a giant footprint for their kitchen, but it isn't being used to its potential! With plywood countertops and no oven, this kitchen is in serious need of a Crash!

A dark garage attached to a small house in Portland, Oregon is converted into a master bedroom retreat giving this family of five a much bigger living space. What was dark exposed wood and a junky storage garage is completely transformed into a bright master bedroom with eight-foot folding doors, a custom headboard, a living art door and all new floors. Plus, a newly sectioned off space becomes a mudroom with all custom storage, porcelain floors and reclaimed wood storage.
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.
Josh Temple opts for a bit of irony in this home by building several exits into a great room that this family will never want to leave. The fun begins with a secret door that is a bookcase by day and an adults-only bar by night. The crew also builds three new French door exits, a super-sized shelving wall that houses a ginormous TV, a shadowbox coffee table on casters, an artfully etched sofa console table, exposed beam ceiling, and a new partition wall that separates the kitchen from the new dining space.
A tiny bland kitchen with broken countertops and outdated cabinets is transformed into a sleek French country kitchen. The kitchen is opened up with a custom reclaimed wood island that houses a brand-new wine fridge and microwave door. Old outdated tile floors are replaced by a warm travertine stone. All new cabinets, appliances, countertops that look like leather and subway tile backsplash make this kitchen pop! Plus a custom hood and unique stools make this a one of a kind kitchen.
A basement stuck in the 1970s with red shag carpet covering an old bar, ugly arches and dark walls is transformed into a bar hang out and lounge area. One area of the room is dedicated to the bar, with a long table that lights up, a back bar with beer tap and a barn wood ceiling soffit. The other side of the room turns into a cozy hangout with a sectional, custom coffee table, huge TV and warm carpet to make the once cold basement a warm inviting space.
An outdated and boring living room crammed with music gear and overtaken by the family dog gets a complete facelift and turned into the ultimate mid century music lounge. An old faux stone fireplace is replaced with hand made subway tile and sleek white marble hearth. Worn carpet is replaced with dark hardwood floors. A custom bar with staggered shelving and hidden bar storage become the focus of the room. A new media center flanks the wall for a brand new TV. Plus, a one of a kind walnut and glass coffee table and dimensional wall panels create one hip living room.
A bland office with a brick fireplace, dark walls and an outdated over sized desk is transformed into a cozy beach retreat. All new cork floors, a reclaimed wood fireplace and custom desk create a bright feel. The dark walls are replaced with light walls with a unique map treatment. Plus, this area is extended to the outside with new sliding doors, custom seating, exotic deck tiles topped off by a concrete fire feature.
A garage filled with junk, a broken garage door and just a plain dark space is brought to life for a fireman and his fiancé. To give these homeowners a man cave and a place to entertain, House Crashers brings in a sleek frosted glass garage door, a concrete bar and a bifold window to the outside. Plus, the team builds a custom work table made from walnut and a fire hose bench perfect for this fireman's man cave.
A tiny outdated kitchen gets completely blown out and rebuilt into a vintage glamorous kitchen. What was a cramped kitchen, with tile countertops and old appliances is transformed into a long spacious kitchen with a vintage locker island, a walnut industrial dining table, blue vinyl floors, and custom banquette. Plus, all new appliances, new cabinets and gold finishing touches make this one chic kitchen.
A dated and dingy bedroom gets a complete makeover fit for Hollywood. The team builds a mahogany deck with sliding doors that lead into a luxurious space with a custom bed, built-in storage and a honeycomb wall partition. The addition of all-wood flooring and a private dressing room with a marble island makes this one glamorous bedroom.
Josh Temple tackles his most challenging renovation to date to turn a cold, mishmash space into 2 distinct but welcoming gathering spots. The top level features a quiet reading library complete with a sleek partition, cushioned storage bench, and a picture frame panel that doubles as a railing. Below, all new dual pane windows and a slider will add light while a brand new firebox lined with floor to ceiling porcelain tile brings in much needed warmth. The room is rounded out with all new furnishings, plenty of bookshelves, a Z-shaped glass top coffee table, a side table with a built in lamp, and rich birch hardwood throughout.
