Cigar Bar Garage Conversion

Edwin lives in a house where every room is taken by other folks and pets. The workout room belongs to his girlfriend, one bedroom is used for the dog, there's even a guest room solely dedicated to out of town company. Josh Temple is about to change it all for the aspiring rapper by turning the garage into a sophisticated dude den where cigar-smoking, fight-watching, card-playing, music-making fun can commence on a whim. The upscale lounge includes an over-sized triangle shelving unit framed in by a pair of cabinets featuring wire trimmed doors, a laminated front bar top that doubles as storage space for musical instruments and sound gear, a wall that hides the washer and dryer on one side and features a whopping 5 TV sets on the other, French doors that open out to the pool, soundproof cork floors, and a faux crocodile grid wall to swank up the livable space with style and comfort.

Black Kitchen, Tan Dining Room

What kind of room do you build for a couple who seem to be afraid of color? How about a black kitchen and a tan dining room! Josh Temple and his crew bring a vibrant pop of elegance to this dated, gloomy combination living space. They pump up the palette in the kitchen with a brand new stainless steel sink and appliances, wood grain and black cabinets, and porcelain flooring throughout. In the dining area, the brick fireplace gets skinned with a metal surround while grandma's hutch is replaced with a modern/industrial floating shelf system complete with framed sliding glass doors on a DIY metal track. The dusty roofline alcove is dressed up with a box light wall, and the whole space becomes a gathering hotspot thanks to a remarkable dining table embellished with a center strip of metal.

Open and Airy Kitchen

Tony and Melissa have a cramped kitchen that is sandwiched between an awkward dining area and a funky den with outdated fireplace. They'd like an open concept kitchen with storage, an island and a bar, and Josh rises to the challenge. He removes the wall between the kitchen and den, opening the space up and providing lots of natural light. He extends the new quartz countertop into the den space providing room for a breakfast bar, and he reworks the fireplace with ledge stone and a reclaimed timber mantel. He removes the awkward uppers and weird peninsula opening up the space between the kitchen and dining area, and adds a huge island with marble countertop. Finally, he creates a magnetic wall mounted pot rack and hidden bar for extra storage.

The kitchen remodel starts with a pass-thru bar into the living room. To bring function to the heart of the home, the guys move the stainless sink, dishwasher and fridge onto a whole new wall, add sweet white cabinets, natural quartzite countertops flecked with platinum, luxury vinyl floors, a window overlooking the den, and a wall-mounted TV. In this two-fer project, the guys take on the dining room as well, bringing in an octagonal pub table, a juice and coffee bar and lots of custom wine storage.

It all starts with a kitchen island outfitted with a cookbook shelf and plenty of drawer and cabinet space, an inside-out countertop divided by an accordion-style sit-on-top window, sleek modern barstools, a beefy mixed wood light fixture and extra long plank vinyl flooring in four mesmerizing colors.

Throwback Media and Living Room

This living space features a rustic burnt cedar barn door, a floating bench made with repurposed framing material, a framed art wall made with a reclaimed 'for sale' sign from a nearby property, and a coffee table topped with the same beautiful stone found on the fireplace.

Stylish Work and Party Garage

A diehard do-it-yourselfer turns his garage over to Josh to bring a sleek blend of work and play inside and out. The workspace begins with a folding room divider that blocks off the garage door and introduces rich wood textures. The work desk goes techy with a secret compartment to hide not one, but two computer monitors that are raised and lowered electronically. The long wall is skinned in aged metal, leading to the next gathering spot that boasts two whiskey bottle end tables, and a ceiling mounted flip down TV. As the guest list grows, revelers can spill outdoors onto the redwood deck that wraps all the way up to the fence to bring privacy and uniformity to this destination spot. A sexy U-shaped bench cozies up the conversation underneath an avant-garde pergola, creating a cabana vibe for VIP's only.
