Ed and Becky have two growing children, and they live next to a golf course. But their old deck just isn't working. It's weathered and crumbling, and can only be used a few months a year. So they challenge the Mega Crew to build a $200,000 deck that will serve as the ultimate spot to barbecue and relax next to the links. The plans call for an outdoor living and dining room with a state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen, sliding glass walls, bench seating and a fire pit. The four-season living space will also feature a hot tub and spiral staircase.
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 Deck team transforms a tiny, cramped deck into the perfect outdoor entertaining space with 1600 square feet of luxury. A detailed concrete pour proves challenging for the team and less-than-idea soil conditions are an unwelcome surprise. And, major decisions have to be made before they can finish the focal point of the whole deck- a massive pizza oven! Even with these road bumps, the team pulls off an amazing, partially enclosed, outdoor living space topped off with a wood-burning fireplace, custom kitchen, and hot tub.
A former Mega Decks customer buys a new house and needs a new deck. 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? Jason leads a $225,000 build that includes a complicated roof on existing architecture, a soaring tongue-and-groove ceiling with a skylight, a floor-to-ceiling fireplace with an articulated mounted TV, a state-of-the-art grilling station, four seating areas, moveable glass walls and a 14-foot fire rail with stone masonry.
With a half a million-dollar budget, this deck spares no expense. And, with the tightest timeline this team has ever had, they've got their work cut out for them. With features like an elevator, mahogany decking, three skylights, and glass walls and flooring, the 12 week deadline that the homeowners have given the team puts a ton of stress on everyone. And, the rain, snow, and cold temperatures that come with fall don't help get this job done in half the time it should take.
A couple in Black Forest, Colorado, dislikes their home's small, exposed deck that leaves guests crowded in the tiny hearth room. Garth designs a deck that opens up the walls, triples the original deck footprint and adds a floor-to-ceiling fireplace and TV to create the ultimate party space.
Garth is challenged to create a modern, spacious deck while maintaining a log cabin feel. His plan includes redoing their entire wrap-around porch with steel framing and maintenance-free decking, adding a rounded section with a fire pit and expanding the main area to become a fully enclosed glass living space. But, the team is thrown for a loop when the homeowners completely change the design plan with three weeks to spare. Add in weather challenges, rotted-out material and last minute crew changes and this Mega Deck just barely finishes in time.
A mountain home in Conifer, Colorado, gets a $375K deck with a wall-sized stone fireplace, a hot tub that seats 12 and a grill kitchen. Jason's team is pitted against Mother Nature, however, when an icy road leads to a delivery truck crash.
When Aaron and Michelle called the Mega Team, they never dreamed Garth would hop on a plane and travel 1600 miles to give them the outdoor living space they'd always wanted, but that's exactly what happened. Now the team has to transform their useless, small and shabby two-level deck into a double decker party zone with all the familiarities of home. 18-foot high ceilings, 11-foot tall glass panels and more audio and visual elements than they've ever seen all come together to create one mega deck.
A couple and their adult kids want to add a new deck to their D'Arbonne Lake home in Louisiana. The current deck is rotting and offers no protection from the heat or insects, so Garth's Southern plantation-style design includes enclosed rooms with air conditioning as well as two fire features and whirlpool tubs.
