Blog Cabin 2010: Remodeling the Kitchen and Yard

Go behind the scenes for a look at the kitchen and front yard makeovers of Blog Cabin 2010.

Jason Cameron advises a crew member as the Desperate Landscapes team lays Kentucky bluegrass sod in the front yard.

The DIY Network cameras catch every moment as the Desperate Landscapes crew installs a bluestone pathway that leads from the staircase to the circular drive. Bluestone material was uncovered in the side yard.

With more than 30 years of combined home improvement experience, John DeSilvia and Jason Cameron prove a perfect pair to tackle the front yard landscaping project.

Jason, John and the Desperate Landscapes crew plant a river birch in the front yard of Blog Cabin 2010.

To give the kitchen a cottage look, John and Marc Bartolomeo install preprimed 5/8” X 6” T&G beadboard on the ceiling.

John and Marc install a glass mosaic backsplash. Tiles in a Tumbled Natural color scheme were selected by online voters.

Chosen by online votes, a Summit Professional undercounter wine cellar completes the gourmet kitchen. The cabinet features two separate temperature zones, which preserve red wine while chilling white.

John and Marc install a Bosch dishwasher with an EcoSense® wash management system that saves up to 20 percent on energy usage.

A Bosch freestanding convection range and stainless steel XO range hood add a modern touch to the traditional kitchen space.
