Shanna and Collin Wheeler recently purchased their first home. Having lived in a tiny condo in Washington, DC until recently, they are eager to settle into their new house in Ohio and meet their neighbors. Their home is small, but their yard is huge! So, to accommodate all of their new friends and Collin's family they ask Dean and Derek to build a dream backyard hangout complete with fireplace and grill area.
To start, Dean and Derek install a kidney-shaped paver patio with an arbor archway. At the center of the design is an old oak tree that Dean and Derek will illuminate with hanging home-made lights. On one side of the patio, they build a fireplace and seating walls. On the other side of the patio, Dean and Derek outfit the Wheelers backyard with a built-in grill unit and dining area. Final touches like plush plantings and furniture transform this once plain backyard into the ideal neighborhood hangout!
