Nothing But Deck

Alvin and Kelly Makino have been living with two small children and an unusable backyard for over a year. The entire back of the house is covered in a dilapidated party deck that is sagging and stacked with splinters. After some back-breaking demo with help from John, these homeowners will continue their savings by framing and building a smaller deck, laying a paver patio and finally seeing some actual green with fresh sod. With the landscaping bids coming in over $20,000, they'll have plenty of ways to save- but they're going to have to sweat it out. After moving stones, lumber and a whole lot of brick, Alvin and Kelly will be more than happy to relax in their new outdoor space, hopefully with some money in hand to spend on a much-needed vacation.
