A couple's home in Parker, Colorado, needs a major deck overhaul to take advantage of the incredible views of the Rocky Mountains and downtown Denver. A $290,000 budget allows the Mega Decks crew to design a 920-square-foot wrap-around deck, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, outdoor kitchen with granite bar and sliding glass walls.
Colorado Springs homeowners with a half-finished deck call on Garth to complete the job and deliver the deck of their dreams. James leads the build on the 1,800-square foot dream deck that includes a huge four-season room with a skylight, an outdoor kitchen, three fire features, ornamental steel railings and a custom 7-foot wide spiral staircase. To complete the project, Garth will need to cut down three beloved 40-foot pines, which makes the homeowners a bit apprehensive. Will the ultimate deck be worth the sacrifice?
The Mega Decks crew is faced with the most difficult task to date, delivering side-by-side penthouse decks to neighboring couples in a historic Denver, Colorado, high-rise.

In the end, the crew completes $500k Mega Decks complete with indoor/outdoor rooms, top-of-the line grill stations, an Alaskan cedar hot tub and a 180-square-foot artificial lawn on a penthouse rooftop.
Garth travels to the Lone Star State to build its first mega deck.

The rustic Colorado mountain-themed masterpiece features a gable roof that's seamlessly tied into the home's existing architecture with a skylight that pours in natural light.

The finishing touches include a new bar-and-grill station and a hot tub, adding a total of 1,000 square feet to the original deck.
In Castle Pines, Colorado, the crew has a $350,000 budget for a contemporary-style mega deck with a curved, hand-cut stone fireplace, sleek steel pergola and pizza oven.

Additional mega-features on this project include a 70-inch TV, state-of-the-art grill and fire pit finished with Colorado buff flagstone.

Can designer Andy and the build crew live up to the client's heightened expectations and deliver a second mega deck that beats the first?

Transforming a home's 20-year-old wooden deck with views of Pikes Peak, Colorado, into a $400,000 mega deck requires a complete demo and rebuild, complete with 13-foot-tall stone wood-burning fireplace, sliding glass panels to enclose the living area, gas fire pit, two dining areas and a grill station complete with granite countertops and a kegerator. Plans also include redoing a kids' play deck and a master bedroom deck. The challenge is that the property sits on the side of a cliff, with 40-foot drops off the deck level and no access from the postage stamp-sized backyard. Master builder James resorts to innovative building methods to get the job done, all while battling 60-mph wind gusts, blinding fog and death-defying heights.
The only downside to spending weekends in this custom log cabin in the mountains of Breckenridge, CO, is its scrawny open-air deck that's only useful a few days a year.

The finished product will have a three-tier pizza oven with granite serving station, a six-foot gas fire rail with custom masonry and extra tall glass panels to maximize this luxe log cabin's majestic views.
