Season 7, Episode 6

Modern Tahoe

Homeowner Bodie and his girlfriend Kalli love their house that has been in Bodie's family for years, but unfortunately, the backyard hasn't been updated in all that time. An old-fashioned patio cover, uneven bricks and no privacy make this space unusable for them and their young son. Their love of Tahoe is the impetus behind the transformation which includes a faux river rock water feature, new entertaining area with pergola, updated patio cover and beams, and a unique piece of art made from a resident tree.
