Male Speaker: Just 48 hours ago, and Kim and Bryan Baptist were shopping for flowers.
Ahmed Hassan: Do you guys want some help with your gardening adventure today?
Male Speaker: That adventure turned into an outdoor kitchen.
Male speaker: Okay, no, no, no. you had it, you had it.
Male Speaker: Yesterday, there were a few hiccups.
Male Speaker: I would prefer, if talking with that way.
Bryan: Actually we will prefer if it were go this way.
Male Speaker: But it's day two and that means crunch time.
Kim: Oh wow! Beautiful!
Male Speaker: Wow!
Ahmed Hassan: Tell them, why you think this stone is so wonderful and why we chose if for. Well, it's going to be a great service to have outside.
Male Speaker: Super low maintenance, you can cut on it, cook on it, wipe it off after the barbecue.
Bryan: I am more pleasantly surprised about the counter-tops.
Kim: We needed that darker surface to kind of counter-balance the black stone, the red, and I love the blue speckles in it. I like it a lot. Yeah.
Ahmed Hassan: So if we're all good with that, we need a rock and roll.
Male Speaker: The framework for the island is just about done. So while Mat is busy prepping for the tile on stucco, Ahmed starts to finesse the flagstone.
The puzzle pieces are laid out and ready for installation. So up next the crew starts getting sand under each piece, so they are not sitting on plain dirt.
It's the end of day two and time for the finishing touch on the patio.
Ahmed Hassan: Alright, so basically it's time to start putting in let's call it the grout within our flagstone patio here. There are a lot of different materials that you can use in between flagstone. What we decided to do on this stuff was wood mulch, shredded red wood would be specific.
Bryan: I don't know if I am really sold on this shredded red wood idea. Kim: The mulch, the gorilla hair I think as what they were calling.
Bryan: I was wondering about the mulch, I was wondering what it was for. I didn't that we have any planting going on and all of a sudden we realized he is going to put this mulch between the cracks, or we just wondered how durable it is an dhow long it will last? And do we have to keep doing it over time or what?
Ahmed Hassan: It's wood, so yes, it will decompose and breakdown over time. All of these trees around you and your neighboring trees all drop leaves. So whatever we put here is ultimately going to be covered in mulch anyway. So we think let's just work with it.
Bryan: I still kind of a little bit leery about it, but the way described it I would compact in there.
Ahmed Hassan: And all this will allow you to do is to really compress this mulch, it'll also knock the dust layer down and it'll go into these cracks a whole lot in here.
Kim: Oh, yeah.
Bryan: I think, it's going to look good.
Male Speaker: It is 4:36 in the p.m.
Ahmed Hassan: With hanging on this process, I think is just barely going to make it.
Bryan: I am hoping it will be complete, couple of hours to go. Suppose we supposed to be done.
Male Speaker: Times up! And this crash is complete. This yard has truly transformed from the ground up giving Kim and Bryan a big check mark on their backyard wish list an upscale outdoor kitchen.
Ahmed Hassan: Now when you have people come over, you can actually bring them out and enjoy your space.
Ahmed Hassan: Instead of walking around and imagining we want this here and we want that there, you've got this now.
