A home renovation project ends in disaster, leaving Lynn kitchen-less for over 8 months. Trying to maintain a sense of home for her 11 year old son, Lynn manages to prepare three meals a day and a complete Christmas dinner in a bare room with exposed studs, holes in the floor and only a microwave and toaster oven for appliances. As Lynn's patience wears thin, Anthony and John step in and vow to complete the renovation in just one weekend. But with french doors that lead from Lynn's kitchen to a several foot drop, John and Anthony feel the need to add on to the project - building a massive deck from which Lynn can relax and watch her son play. Lynn is a supermom struggling in a construction-site kitchen and the Cousins transform her life in 48 hours.
Sean thought he was saving the day when he snaked the tub in his upstairs bathroom. Unfortunately, his heroic efforts ended in disaster when he broke a pipe and caused the ceiling above his kitchen to literally come crashing down. His wife, Dewanna, seized the opportunity to get the kitchen of her dreams. Enter the Kitchen Cousins. The guys open up the walls and rearrange the rooms to create a unique open floor plan and a design that incorporates Sean and Dewanna's classic and chic style.
This week the Cousins create a rustic luxe kitchen for fashionista Jeannie Mai of the Style Network and Freddy Harteis, Sportsman Channel's Hollywood Hunter. This husband and wife want to marry their opposite and unique styles. Jeannie takes Anthony and John to one of her favorite restaurants on the Sunset Strip for inspiration and the guys get back to nature with Freddy on an archery range to get those design juices flowing. John and Anthony mix up some crazy ideas to combine rustic and luxury including a modern quartz countertop with a crocodile pattern and an ancient take on wood paneling. They bring in some raw California redwood to top a one-of-a-kind bar and even put their own twist on taxidermy. The finished product feels like a cozy cabin in the woods with sexy Hollywood style.
With a little one on the way, Mike and Danielle have a kitchen with some BIG design problems. The layout is anything but functional - there are doors that lead to nothing, strange cabinet configurations, and a useless standalone dishwasher. And hidden inside the cabinets is a radiator that makes the countertops hot to the touch and has the homeowners steaming. John and Anthony come up with a beautiful design that opens up the first floor and ties the overall design of the home together. Rustic black cabinets with a weathered look show off the home's colonial style. But the real design feature is the use of copper... everywhere. A copper tile backsplash and a beautiful copper range hood in the center of the room add a warm feeling to the space. And a custom wrapped copper countertop for the bar area is a one-of-a-kind showpiece. This is a home built for a growing family that they'll be enjoying for years to come!
