Home Plate Hangout

Episode DIND-306H

John and Chrissy Maguire love the Cape almost as much as they love baseball. When they found the perfect Cape Cod cottage right next to the Chatham Angler's baseball field, they were ecstatic! Their quaint home, however, is only 800 square feet, which makes inviting family and friends over for ball games nearly impossible. With a love for the game, and a knack for distinctive projects, Dean and Derek are the perfect contractors to come up with a baseball themed design. Their design maximizes the space in the back yard without overwhelming the existing charm and style of the Cape Cod cottage. They start by installing a quartzite paver patio in the shape of home plate. In keeping with the baseball theme, they build a bar/grilling station accented with baseball bats - perfect for entertaining guests. To keep the Maguire's warm on those cool Cape Cod nights, Dean and Derek bring in a removable firepit and seating area. But to really make this home plate hangout complete, they add relaxing chairs-on stilts-for a perfect view of the baseball field. Throw in lush plantings, more seating, and a top notch sound system, and this outdoor room is an absolute home run!
