Garage Proposal - Top Design Episode 5
Part of the assignment was to build a maquette, a small preliminary model they would later use to present to the client.
News flash, Carisa. In the real world, designing women (and men) don't lounge around on the couch, eat bon-bons and gab with their friends all day. They roll up their sleeves, break a sweat and do their best to please the client.
It's now time to divvy up the carpenters. Having won the last project, Carisa got first dibs. She picked Carl, Andrea picked Blair, Matt picked Ed, Goil picked Sarah, Ryan picked Robert, Michael picked Cary, and Erik picked Jared. It was kind of sad seeing some of my favorite carpenters get passed over.
Andrea assigned each designer a task they were most comfortable doing. Being the artist, Ryan was entrusted with painting the gray stripes on the concrete floor. Matt was good with organizing. Michael can do wonders with fabric and drapery. Erik helped out with some of the construction. And Carisa was used to being banished to another room.
Goil spent most of his time working on a dog bed – with wheels. I say if Goil had painted the dog bed red, that dog would be the envy of the neighborhood.
Now it's time for judging. Kelly Wearstler came back from her Trekkie convention just in time.
Even though the Bells liked their new garage, the judges weren't too thrilled. Because Ryan didn't turn the garage into the next Sistene Chapel, the judges sent his artsy-fartsy ass home.
You know what Goil? You are so right. If you take your glasses off and stand on some phone books, you really do look like Andrea Junior.
For the second week in a row, the judges made fun of Michael's fruity color choices. Michael, honey, if you're really fond of grapes and bananas, then I say just go for it. There's no shame in letting people know you covet the grapes and the bananas. Fine choices if you ask me.
