Season 1, Episode 10

Creating Vintage Charm with New and Old Elements

Julie and John are proud owners of a 100-year-old Craftsman bungalow with one big problem: its grassy backyard lacks the charm and character of their home. The couple ask Chris to create a backyard that incorporates their eclectic taste and their 5-year-old son's need for outdoor space, while preserving the integrity of the Craftsman style. Chris' design includes a new deck with columns that perfectly match those on the home's front porch. When the homeowners ask for a roof, Chris cleverly creates a see-through roof that lets in light while protecting the deck from the elements. A concrete water feature with lily pads and koi is an unexpected surprise off the deck. And the feature everyone will remember is the vintage bike fence that blocks unsightly views while keeping the couple's antique bike collection ready to ride. Chris and his team finish the transformation just in time for the couple's celebration of the home's 100th year, one in which the new backyard is as charming and interesting as the home itself.
