Creating a Tropical Paradise in St. Pete

Chris McDonough fled Philadelphia's cold winters for a sunnier life near the beach, but her yard is anything but sunny. She lives in a historic area filled with cute bungalows, but her house is boring and barren. Jason Cameron has a plan to turn Chris's yard into a tropical paradise, and to do it, he'll add a retractable awning, a new bar and patio, and green screen with custom shelves. With all the fun new elements, Chris will definitely fit into this funky neighborhood.
