Vanilla Ice is back to tackle his toughest Florida flip ever in Season 5 of “The Vanilla Ice Project” on DIY Network. The pop icon and knock-out home renovator has taken his biggest risk yet, investing in a high-dollar lakefront dump in need of a top-to-bottom transformation. That means ripping rooms to the studs, adding a boat dock with a tiki hut, and turning the outdated garage into one any auto enthusiast would love, replete with new garage doors, a car carousel, and a wall of cultured stone.
Clopay and Broten Garage Doors installed four Canyon Ridge® Collection Limited Edition Series garage doors on the Florida mansion. This is the fourth time the manufacturer and distributor have partnered with rapper turned home renovator “Vanilla Ice”, a.k.a. Rob Van Winkle.
Every project Rob does features the state-of-the-art technology and mouth-watering building products and décor, but it isn’t just eye-candy. Rob knows great curb appeal is what brings buyers in the door, so he focuses as much energy on creating an appealing exterior as he does on wowing prospects once they get inside.
Van Winkle selected Clopay stained faux wood carriage house doors with Clear Cypress cladding and overlays. The doors are a perfect solution for the coastal Florida environment because they won’t rot, warp, or crack. Featuring a five-layer thick construction with Intellicore® insulation technology, the doors are incredibly durable and secure. They are also built to withstand 150 M.P.H. windows, thanks to Clopay’s WindCode® reinforcement.
In true “Ice” fashion, no garage door is complete without the appropriate amount of bling. The doors are finished with wrought iron decorative hardware.
Other unforgettable features on this 6,000 sq. ft. home include the man-cave garage with custom art on the epoxy floor, a workout and beverage station, and a car turn-around built into the driveway.
The Vanilla Ice Project airs on the DIY Network Saturdays at 10 p.m. ET. Watch episodes online at http://www.diynetwork.com/shows/the-vanilla-ice-project.
