Derek Stearns: Outdoor rooms are a perfect way to extend the living space without a lot of cost. We are working on an outdoor room in this TC backyard using stone for the enclosing walls and wood for the deck that will make up a cozy eat-out kitchen. Big question is, do we outrun the web? Our little tent area is turning into an apartment, it's very important to us because it's keeping us dry and it's letting everybody, especially the carpenters do their work. Hey check this out we have mood lighting, we have exposed beams, a beautiful roof, look at the view, a natural floor. Hey NGC, this studio apartment will go for about $1200. The first part of beam is going up. We nudged the ends for a clean look and tight fit. We will repeat the same process for the remaining beams. Rob has wired the backyard for landscaping lighting, planting will begin soon. As for the masons, they are prepping the sitting walls for the bluestone caps. Bobby Caballero: It's amazing what's going on in my backyard in that little space. I didn't know it can look like this, I mean it's not even done and I am like getting real excited. Derek Stearns: Meanwhile Kia has not seen any of the progress. Kia: I can't wait, like it's going to be a long couple of days. Derek Stearns: Today, we have Bobby helping us, just piled it up there, funny to work with and then you are going to help Dean and I work on the fireplace, which is the thing that yeah, look at you, all excited about that, all excited about that. Bob Caballero: Hope he is good with numbers. Derek Stearns: 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, we've got a lot to get, Bobby. Bobby Caballero: 23 and 24. Derek Stearns: Each piece is numbered, so it's just a matter of following the instructions. Because this fireplace is made from a special blend of luminite and shale, it's super lightweight and extremely durable. Dean Marsico: I like the handles on this table, look at that. Derek Stearns: And because everything slides together and it's mortar free, it only takes a few hours. Dean Marsico: Drop it, but I have to tell you how easy is this? I am telling you right now. Derek Stearns: Alright, it fits like, we could have a fire in about 20 minutes. Dean Marsico: Look at that. Derek Stearns: Read the instructions, just going to make it Dean, just going to make it. Alright just be patient, this is for you, it is be patient Dean. Dean Marsico: Derek is working on the carves, you can see that he already cut the bluestone to follow that beautiful curve in the wall. Now he is thermalling the sawcut. When you sawcut stone, the sawcut is ugly, so what he is doing, he is roughing up that sawcut by using high heat -- and he is on fire right now. Are you okay, man? Alright, that's one of the things when you thermal stone, the stone heats up, pops and then hot stone pins at her. Derek Stearns: Hot stone shapes are just the start of our problems. Rain, it's back. Our worksite is becoming a mud tank, still we push on. Okay, Rob and I are bringing in a couple of dwarf Chamaecyparis and they are going to go right by the board, over here. We bring them in because we are going to start getting them planted before we stop bringing in the crush stone.
We also have a tent over here on top of the wall because they are starting to put the cap on, we need to bring it over here to finish this cap but you know what, even though it's been raining for three days, the mood here is still very good. It's very good. This is the DIY water feature, nothing wrong with that, I did it myself, eco-friendly, it's green and blue.
