A Backyard Adventureland

Episode DGFI-602UH

The beautiful suburban home of Valentino and Nikki Jefferson hides a backyard adventure-land that Val has built over the years. It's a wooded wonderland he loves to share with his three sons and daughter, but unfortunately it's hampered by poor planning and limited carpentry skills. Jackie and Dean remedy a steeply sloped yard with some broad, pressure treated steps, and put the lid back on a favorite play area. The woods provide all the raw materials needed to create a rustic arched entrance to Val's wooded forest path. Then it's time to retrofit Val's zipline platform using composite decking over pressure treated posts and joists to make the platform safety for kids of all sizes who want to fly down the zip line and head off to the forest. It's a weekend transformation that uses natural elements to create the perfect personalized wooded wonderland for an active outdoor family.
