boys vs. girls...

"Summer Showdown" round 2, is on Sunday (8-10-08) and it's a 1-hour "Iron Chef" like competition for designers and carpenters. Lisa LaPorta & Carmen De La Paz VS. Me & Carter. We are redoing the same kitchen in six hours on a studio sound stage with all materials available in the moment. The frantic competition has been edited down to a 1-hour very exciting show.

You can check out our "trash talk" a blog as well as photos and other info at:

Hope you can check it out to see who wins, post your comments and send your feedback!

I will comment on it after the show has been aired and done.

-Have a great weekend,

What the peole can do to avoid unnecessary ocasional desorder?
Show us hints about how can organize stuff usually people don't want to use but, at the same they wouldn't discharge.
Thanks for your tips!

WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO! The boys took the prize. Congrats. Love the use of eco-friendly products. Was not too crazy about the color on the walls but the rest totally rocked! Loved the pulls on the upper cabinets. It was totally funny when Lisa threatened to RIP your stuff off the walls. Great job!

Congratulations! It's nice to see a kitchen that isn't dark cabinets/granite counters/stainless appliances.

I wish I could find a way to redo my kitchen for only $10,000. ;-)

Congrats Angelo! Wowza...A six hour kitchen!! I couln't think of anything harder, but you and Carter rocked it out!!
I was a little nervous when I first saw the paint color against that countertop but you made it all work together beautifully. And you stuck to your guns with your Eco friendly choices!
You are one A-mazing designer. Six hours to redo a whole kitchen is just unheard of! It must have been sooo nerve racking. I bet you're glad its done, but I'd love to see you on more challenges. Maybe a grand prize winner final showdown?
Congrats again! ~Nancy

I'm not even going to peek at the comments to see who won. Off I go to see if I can find it on the Web.

I never, not for a nano-second, had any doubt that you and Carter would win. I have to say that Carter’s laidback, calm attitude would have caused me to pull out MY hair; but, it seemed that you balanced each other! Also, you were the consummate gentleman in the face of Lisa’s “attack” regarding the wood! LOL! It was all great fun to watch!

Your reaction to winning made the evening that much more enjoyable. Thanks for such a fun event!

The kitchen you both designed was much more comfortable & the eco-friendly aspect was just a bonus.
