Jeff and his wife Elizabeth moved from the city to a large house in the suburbs. They love their outdoor space that they share with two dogs and would like to replace the old deck, create a new patio and lounge area. With bids coming in at $15,000 over their initial budget, they are in desperate need to save money by doing the work themselves. While their contractor takes care of the structural and permitting issues, Jeff lays the new deck, installs a cobble systems patio, and replaces his old sliding doors to save himself some dough and create a relaxing outdoor space. But with permitting delays and bad weather threatening the work, will Jeff get more than he bargained for?
