Who has a custom HOUSE? "Guy Space" for HGTV and L

#1 Unread post by lmno1 » Tue Oct 24, 2006 7:43 pm

What's up guys,

I work for a show called "Guy Space" for HGTV and LMNO TV. We want to find guys who have tricked out a room in their house and made it into their private get-away. A guy room.

I figure guys who work on bikes probably also take the time to custom build a section of their house. If this sounds like you, let me know.

Steve

We're an actual show, from an actual network...I'm a researcher sitting at my desk and waiting for responses.

Check out LMNO Productions on the web if you're skeptical.

guys who work on bikes and have a customized, tricked out "Guy Space" in their home, and want to show it off on TV, let me know.

To all members:

Yes, the above post is REAL. And Steve Schneir is from LMNO PRODUCTIONS. 15821 Ventura Blvd Suite 320, ENCINO CALIFORNIA 91436 www.lmnotv.com

Please do extend a warm welcome to Steve and if you have any stories at all that might be interesting just post them here. I'm sure a lot of us have guy space in their homes and/or garage! :D

If you don't really want to write up a story I'm sure Mr Schneir would still love to hear from you.

Welcome to the Total Motorcycle community Steve.

Well, thats a nice job. If you are just sitting there waiting for responses. :D

I only purchased my home a year ago so none of my work has been guy-specific. My garage is on hold pending other more important projects. Would I like to build special organizers for all my tools, set up a beer cooler and tile the floor with a black/white checker pattern? Sure, but I don't have the time and money right now. However if your show is offering to do a garage makeover, I'm all for it!

My other space is my office. But it is not the stereotypical 'guy' stuff you are probably looking for. Now if you are looking for the sanctuary of a guy who wants to browse over a full wall library of books and listen to music in peace while enjoying a glass of scotch, my room might be up your alley.

No offence, but shouldn't this be hiding in the soap box forums???

I wish I had a house to put a "Guy Space" in. Although I do have a friend that has a "Girls Space" in her home. 56" Widescreen HD-ILA Projection HDTV, 7.(whatever) surround sound, and a $30,000+ drop dead stereo system which is solidly centered by Audio Research tube amps...



I'm sooooooooo... jealous.

So is this only a "Guy" space thing??? Considering my guy's last hoorah in the garage, I wouldn't mind having a temp regulated, sound system wired, plumbed for air, water, gas stove/oven, fridge area of my own to work on my bike :laughing:

The "cell" downstairs they call a garage is where I run off to to work on things outside (truck, bike). And upstairs I have a couple work tables setup in the workout room where I can do gunsmith, leatherwork and airplane models. Just got my new compressor setup so I need to build a spray booth.

Without big money, having our big house, toys and space we need won't happen for a long time. Isn't that pretty much everyone's big idea? :D

I turned two closets into one large one, put wood floors down, added an outlet, lightswitch, and lights. I also put in a desk, cable internet, and a bookcase. It's my little getaway, my "office", although it's smaller than the average cubicle. But it's my three walls plus an optional door.


This is the office before I put up the bookcase.

Image

The bookcase has three shelves and covers the whole wall behind the desk, it's painted black to offset the Pumpkin Patch Orange (Halloween being my favorite holiday I figured it fit).

Oh, and now I've gotten two more monitors, plus you can't tell but I have 5.1 surround sound, the close space makes it perfect for movies and games in surround sound. Also, I've got a second computer running and I can flip back and forth between the monitor on the desk in the pic between the two computers. One runs Linux and one runs WinXP (just for gaming).


I don't know if this qualifies, but hey, it's something.

We've only just bought our house, so although the garage is mine nothing interesting has happened to it yet!


Now my friend Dawn knocked down their garage and built a wooden one (too go with all the other buildings she has put in their backyard). The new garage has storgae space, designated tool space and a working area as well as a bike sized spraybooth...

It's awesome!

We have a garage, but it is just chock full of STUFF, including our two bikes, and the convertible hubby has been rebuilding. It still has a dirt floor (bad for tires) and it's really dingy and garage-y.

We watch these types of shows and just drool! I think my hubby DESERVES to have the garage of his dreams, but on many levels, it is not possible. Anyone I know that has such a thing, makes a boat load of money. We barely made a dinghy full!

But as the others have said, if you are interested in finding a candidate for the show, I'm IN!

welcome aboard, lmno...

sounds like a cool show... unfortunately my "guy space" is my garage, which isn't tricked out at all... i've talked about tricking out the garage or a room in the house, but real life has taken priority... maybe one day...

Thanks for all the replies! Diemonkey, the closet/desk probably wont work. Although it totally understand that being your "Guy Space." I used to have my office in a closet about that size.

We definitely want to find something crazy, unique, and with a TV cool factor. Whatever that means, ask the suits!

I live with two other guys, so the whole house is pretty much a "guy" space (unless our girlfriends are there, but we don't mind, because they do the dishes).

I doubt that's what you were looking for, but I figured I'd chime in, lol.

Cam, is the kitchen viewable from the living room? If so, take a few snapshots of you and your roommates on the couch drinking beer and watching football while the girlfriends are in the kitchen doing the dishes. Can't think of a better guyspace than that.

Not sure of any room that would be TV worthy in my house. However I do have a shed in the back yard with a built in motorcycle parking space, wall-size TV with 300 channels, a built in beer bar with 10 on tap and half a dozen monkey slaves dressed like midget clowns holding trays serving all my buds chips and beer. Would that count? If you need more, I could possibly force my friends to eat nasty products and let the audience vote them off my property (by shotgun of course).

Lol, as a matter o' fact it is! and that picture will be taken as soon as possible. Of course, they really don't have many dishes to do, all we eat is ramen (which, you can use the bowl exactly 3 times before you have to wash it), and all we drink is beer (which comes in it's own convenient bottle).

Eventually I'm going to tap into the AC ductwork and run a vent over the office, as it's small, and it's running a couple of computers it gets very hot. I have two fans blowing air across the room from the vent about 10ft away. Doesn't help much, but every little bit counts.

After the kids were all grown up and the second divorce was finished with I had local contractor build me a custom house. It's mine and all guy space. Pictures of motorcycles in the dining area, hallway, etc. . A garage set up for my bikes on one side and my 4WD on the other. A den and living room with a great sound system.

My present girlfriend is not allowed to stay for more than two nights in a row. I've got the place set up how I want, I'm happy with it, it's mine and it's going to stay that way.
