Smashing a Deck, Hot Tub and Shed to Make Way for a Fabulous Outdoor Entertainment and Play Space

Jason Cameron brings a Sledgehammer to Christa and Josh McAlpins' house. He gives them 30 seconds to choose the rooms that they hate the most. Josh and Christa's choice is their ugly backyard deck. When Jason hands over the sledgehammers, homeowner Christa reveals that she's pregnant and can't swing the hammer. Jason steps in to help Josh get the job done, but will Josh have enough time to demolish the deck, the hot tub and the falling down shed before turning his attention to the outdated bathroom? Time runs out on the bathroom project, but Jason delivers on his promise to redo the backyard. He adds a huge new deck with an incredible play space for the couple's two-year-old daughter. Jason also shows how to create a custom grill space complete with a manufactured stone finish.
