Outdoor Spaces from DIY Network's Show, Indoors Out
A Relaxing Outdoor Room
Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns, and their crew helped transform a little-used backyard into this outdoor room for meditation and relaxation.
Before: A Junkyard for a Backyard
This backyard is a block from the beach, but the homeowners had no outdoor space to enjoy the fresh air and oceanside surroundings. Their backyard was serving essentially as a junkyard.
An Artistic Backyard
To create the new outdoor space, Derek and Dean add natural flagging to the entire area, an abundance of plants and a custom-made stone sculpture for an artistic flourish.
A Spa-Like Outdoor Shower
For washing off sand and salt, and for relaxing after a day at the beach, an outdoor shower and wood deck were installed in the narrow space between the house and an existing fence.
An Open Entryway
Dean and Derek helped enhance the sense of privacy, as well as the visual appeal, by adding a vintage-style screen door.
A Colorful Wooden Door
The new door was a salvage that was sanded, primed and repainted in a color to complement the newly replanted surroundings.
Before: Prepping for an Outdoor Kitchen
The backyard area is prepped for the installation of the outdoor kitchen, and the design for the deck and curved stone wall is mapped out.
A Tranquil Outdoor Sitting Area
Dean, Derek and the crew transform a neglected urban backyard into a peaceful retreat with a water feature and fireplace.
A Peaceful Outdoor Kitchen
A pergola provides a little shade over the grilling and seating area.
A Modular Outdoor Fireplace
A modular outdoor fireplace provides year-round comfort. The fireplace is made from a special blend of luminite and shale to create a lightweight and durable structure.
An Eat-Out Kitchen
The new yard features a curved stone wall, stone pavers, new plants and accent lighting to create an atmosphere that's perfect for relaxing or entertaining.
