Kevin Carroll and his wife Mary Jo have raised five daughters together in their Kingston, Mass., home. Being the only male in a house full of females hasn't always been easy for Kevin, who has worked multiple jobs over the years. In fact, just finding a quiet room to relax in is nearly impossible. That's why the six females in Kevin's life have called in Dean and Derek to help design the perfect outdoor den. The guys will create a space where Kevin can just kick back and hang out - even in cold weather.
Florida resident Barri VanCoulter and her two children, Michael and Julianna, have lots of friends in their cozy neighborhood but limited space in their small Palm Harbor home to entertain and socialize. With an inside space that's too tight and an unusable backyard with a slope and a drainage easement, Barri's entertaining options are limited. Dean and Derek agree there is only one option: a fabulous front porch! The design also includes a huge new pergola, a brick patio in a herringbone pattern, a seating wall and a fire pit.
