Licensed contractor Josh Temple and his House Crashers crew head to coastal Waldoboro, Maine to build out the living room of the nineteenth-century farmhouse selected as the 2012 Blog Cabin. In three days, Josh transforms the living room into a comfy, inviting space using reclaimed materials with rustic charm. A shelving unit and a message center are built to help organize the space, a window seat is added to emphasize the breathtaking water views and an antique card table is repurposed into a unique coffee table.
Host Chris Grundy has compiled a list of beautiful and functional kitchen features submitted by bloggers for the Blog Cabin 2012. These choices will be displayed in the large, empty space which will soon be the kitchen of this relaxing vacation property. It's up to interior designer and Kitchen Crashers host Alison Victoria to install the cabinets, countertops and kitchen island and create a custom-built nine-foot-long table and coffee bar out of reclaimed lumber from a barn on the property. The result of these stunning additions and the carefully-chosen blogger selections is an amazing and elegant farmhouse kitchen anyone would be thrilled to win.
The master suite at Blog Cabin was old, dark and uninviting. Matt Muenster and the Bath Crashers crew open up the bathroom and bedroom, mixing farmhouse finds with contemporary comfort. The bathroom is turned into a wet-room with a huge, open shower and a giant tub that fills from the ceiling. The bedroom is in touch with the home's roots, featuring a custom headboard made of reclaimed doors from the property and the bed with vintage table legs.
Anitra and Company work their Mega Dens magic on an 1880s farmhouse in coastal Maine that's being given away to a lucky viewer as Blog Cabin 2102. They team up with Chris Grundy to trick out the top floor, turning newly-finished attic space into a media center with a custom-built book-and-nap nook, an entertainment center with a decidedly barn vibe, and a game table that uses the home's original wooden gutters as a poker chip tray. An old bedroom becomes a home office with a from-scratch desk built out of old barn siding, magazine racks made from shipping pallets, and a desk chair created from an antique tractor seat found on-site. Anitra blends her own Mega Dens style with viewers' choices for everything from wall paint to a loft ladder to a one-of-a-kind doghouse that will make one DIY viewer the top dog when their next vacation rolls around.
Matt and the Yard Crasher crew head to Blog Cabin in coastal Maine. An overgrown yard gets a rustic elegant makeover anchored by a cobblestone patio with compass design. A curved deck takes in the waterfront view, and a hand crafted repurposed wood bench adds a waterfront relaxation area. A hot tub and stone fireplace make the backyard a cool hangout for the newly revamped Blog Cabin 2012.
