A hideous living room with stained carpet, lava rock fireplace, broken sliders to a hot closed in patio is completely transformed into a sleek industrial rustic living room. In three days, the 1970s fireplace is torn out and replaced by a concrete fireplace with a live edge mantle, a metal media wall with pallet media center are showcased with a 60 inch TV, plus the room is opened into a new open patio divided by 18 foot sliding glass doors.
It's a French flashback to the 30's and 40's when entertaining guests was done in impressive and luxurious parlors. Josh Temple enhances the usability of this living room and dining room by creating two sophisticated areas. First, for the living room, is an inviting cinematic sitting space featuring a fireplace accentuated by thin brick veneer and a 60-inch TV, art deco niches with a vertical aquarium backdrop, and chesterfield seating. For the dining room, there's a banquette built into a pony wall with ironwork detailing, a bar cabinet and draft tower unified with tile en pointe and sculptural spindles, a reclaimed table made from original flooring, and a hand painted silhouette of a French 75 field cannon.

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.

Josh Temple knows it'll take a whole lot more than a dab of concealer to renovate this makeup artist's bedroom. He'll rip through astroturf carpet remnants and a multitude of cobwebs to transform a chaotic bedroom into a Balinese retreat. In three days, the crew will craft a luxurious raised bed platform with bedside tables, new windows and a panel door all atop a renewable bamboo floor. Then they'll bring the outdoors in with a spacious deck-turned chill zone featuring a water fountain trickling down a pebbled wall, a slate skinned firebox, a copper and wood shelving unit, and a tropical reed-like table.
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.
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.
