Modern Deck Makeover In a Day | Scott’s House Call S3 (EP 7)


– It’s not that pink
– I had the idea (arguing) – Gentlemen, gentlemen, gentlemen! I feel stuck between your petunias here. (upbeat music) Jeff and Neander moved from
the city to the suburbs in order to enjoy more space. But with an overwhelming
amount of work going on inside, the outside has been an afterthought. So I’m gonna deck out their yard, and I’m gonna do it in day. – And this is the backyard. – Whoa Wow This is something. – [Jeff] Yeah – There’s not a lot of
room out, excuse me. – No, for one to call this a
deck would really be a stretch. As you can see, it’s very tight. – Wow, that’s quality right there. Look at this thing!
– I know it’s– Guys, this is a disaster
waiting to happen. – [Jeff] Yeah – [Scott] That’s too bad
because this was all here when you guys bought the place. – [Neander] Yes, yeah. – So you guys were living
in a condo last year. – Yes, we know that part of our living. That’s why we were able to kind of get the work
done on the inside. Because it’s like “Okay, indoor
living space is our condo “and we’ve always been fine with that.” But one of the reasons why
we decided to finally invest in a home and move out here was to take advantage of the fact that we can actually have
a nice outdoor living space and an indoor living space. We wanna be proud of our backyard. We wanna host our family. We wanna have really enjoyable
moments with everybody and right now, we’re
just kind of embarrassed to invite them over. – [Scott] Yeah – And also, Jeff has his
friends, I have my friends so we can never have
those kinds of parties ’cause we can’t feed
everybody in the living room. – No you can’t invite people over for a backyard party with this. – [Neander] No. – I see where we can go with this. I think that there’s a blueprint here to make a space that you
can entertain your friends. All doable. I will have to do some posts in order to build the new structure. And if I’m gonna do that in a day, I’m gonna get my friends
at Techno Metal Posts to come in and drill them in. They can probably get the posts in place in under and hour and then we’ll have the rest
of the day to build the deck. – Fantastic – Okay, let’s clear all this outta here. – All right, let’s get it out. (upbeat music)
(saw whirring) – And we can build on
this right away right? – Yeah, so basically I’m gonna come in, I’ll set my offsets up, and once I’m complete, you’ll be able to build right away. – Love it. Deck in a day. (upbeat music) Gentleman, the original
deck has been ripped off. That didn’t take very long.
– [Jeff] No, it was good. – We’ve pretty much cleared
everything out of our way. The front of the deck is going to end up right about here. So from here forward, I figured you guys could
pull out the landscape stones and just neatly pile them back here and they will be underneath the deck. – Cool. Awesome.
– Great. – All right, thanks guys. – You got it. (upbeat music) – So we don’t have to do any railings? – Exactly, keep it simple. – That’s how I love it. I love this, it’s clean. – And then just fence to fence. Nice little shade structure up top. Deck in a day. Game On. – Deck in a day, let’s get to it guys. – Neander gettin’ in there. Come on Neander. You make it look so painful! So this is the deck boards
we’re gonna use here. It’s called Katana. It’s an engineered product. It’s bamboo, it’s sustainable. It’ll dull a little bit
because it’s a natural wood so it’ll give it that gray tone to it. – [Jeff] That’s nice,
that’s gonna look amazing. – And we’re not gonna run it
like a typical deck board. We’re gonna run it more
like a hardwood floor. Okay, just makin’ sure you
guys are happy with it. – No, love it, love it. – Okay, I have another
project for you guys out front so I’ll meet you guys out
there in just a minute. I wanna start getting
these deck boards out. – Thanks Scott! – Thanks Scott!
– Thanks guys. – So I’m thinkin’ just a
couple of planters on the deck can add a lot of life to the space. For me anyway, the rule is
to keep these symmetrical, but mirrored. How you guys feelin’? That deck’s comin’ together. – The deck is– – So cool – It looks like you guys have
done a lotta work inside. – We have. I think that was all the stuff
that we were comfortable with and we knew the things
that we wanted to invest in to give the property a lot more, a much stronger look and a much more impressive– – Increase the value of
the property or something. – Yeah, that people when they walk in would kinda go, if and when
we decide to resell it, it’s gonna be of quality
that they’re gonna like. – The beauty about doin’
renovations on your house, if you do them right, it’s kinds like putting
money in the bank, right? – [Jeff] Yeah – ‘Cause you’re increasing the value, so you’re getting a return on it. But the nice thing about
doin’ it on your home is that you get that instant gratification of being able to use it as well. – [Jeff] Absolutely. – [Neander] What are you
doing here, what’s happening? – [Jeff] What? – [Scott] You’ve over petunia-ed. – I’ve over petunia-ed? – Yeah. – [Jeff] How can you ever over petunia? – I need some color in mine so maybe white and
– You know what? – Good luck gentlemen. – Thank you! – Good luck gentlemen! It’ll be great. – It’ll be gorgeous! – Thanks Scott! (upbeat music) – Hi – Is this were you guys hang out? – Yep
– Yeah – This is what we have now – Hopefully not in the future. – Yeah, all right. Well we’re goin’ to change everything. Let me show you guys where
it’s time to hang now. – Amazing – Let’s check out this new deck! Can’t wait to see this! – Gentlemen, check out your backyard! – Wow! Oh my! Wow! – [Neander] What is goin’ on over here? – [Jeff] This is, oh my gosh. I don’t even know where to look first. – [Scott] First things first, brand new Weber barbeque. – [Neander] That barbeque is so gorgeous. – [Scott] You got a
little dining area here, which is great.
– So cute! Lot’s of room for everybody
to kinda sit down, relax, have a meal. Then we’ve got the pergola over here, which was a great system we put up. It’s got the canopy across the top, which you can remove if you’d like. – [Jeff] Look at the furniture. – [Neander] This is incredible! This decking! It looks like a floor. – [Scott] Well, this is a
bit of a different style. It’s going to weather very nicely, ’cause it’s consistent throughout. You don’t have to powerwash
it, you don’t have to stain it, you don’t have to do anything, just let it age and let
the grain come through. You’re good to go, no maintenance. So the only way to do this in a day was to use the Techno Metal
Posts for our structure, and then we tied the frame into that. I brought in the BroLaws. They were amazing. We worked as a team. We ran everything as fast as we could but also as clean as we could. You know what? I’m happy for you guys. I know you were concerned
about where to invest your money with this property and I think not only are you gonna get a good return on investment, you’re gonna get the return on lifestyle that you were lookin’ for here. – We’re gonna live it. This is a space we can live. – All right gentlemen, enjoy okay? – Thank you! – I think we should sit down. – Exactly. – Let’s go try the seats. – Hey Scott! See we finally got to have
the barbeque we always wanted and look, I’m barbequing! See? – And the best part is, look over there! – Our friends came over! (cheering) – Thanks Scott! – This is amazing! We are absolutely loving the backyard and we couldn’t have
imagined anything better. It’s just amazing!
