THE STONE DECK
No one likes maintaining a deck, and Cheryl and Andrew are proof of that! They want to replace their rotting cedar deck with a low maintenance version that has all the fixings. Paul’s got the perfect solution, a deck that’s surfaced completely in stone! This one’s got a ton of add-ons - a massive hot tub, a covered BBQ that’s connected to the house by a heated walkway, a fire table, a water feature and finally backlit translucent stone privacy screens! Not only will Cheryl and Andrew have practically no maintenance to do, they can also spend all of their free time relaxing on their luxurious new deck.

THE PRIVACY DECK
Selmin and Yasmin want to fill in their massive empty backyard with a deck big enough to accommodate their huge extended family. They also have an interesting request for Paul - create enough privacy so Selmin can enjoy the outdoors without wearing her traditional Islamic headscarf. Paul’s really into this one and builds a two-tiered deck. The first story level has three separate lounge zones that are completely sheltered from the rain and surrounded by retractable mesh screens to keep the bugs out. The second story level has decorative privacy screens and a curved translucent polycarbonate pergola that covers a dining zone and BBQ. This deck has a ton of style and privacy, and is truly one of a kind.

THE BEACH CLUB DECK
Cass lives at and runs a gorgeous beach club with an in-ground pool surrounded by 11 family cottages, and dreams of having a large outdoor communal space where everyone can congregate. Paul has the perfect solution – and it’s big! He encompasses the pool with two lounges covered by twin pergolas with retractable awnings, a separate dining and outdoor kitchen zone, and a large sun lounging deck. Abundant fire features enable the party to continue well into the evenings, as do two large backlit see-through stone onyx panels. Glass panel railings allow the community to socialize and take in the stunning view of the lake all at the same time.

THE STAINLESS STEEL DECK
Susan and Burt bought the perfect new house to retire in, except their open backyard has a nice view and nothing else! Paul has carte blanche on this epic outdoor space, and builds a main deck with dining and cooking areas that’s connected by three bridges to an octagonal island lounging deck. Stainless steel privacy screens block out the neighbouring houses, and stone clad posts support stainless steel pergolas that complete the modern look of the deck. Susan and Burt can now enjoy their retirement in luxury.

THE BRIDGE DECK
Samantha and David want something different, and want Paul to be as creative with their backyard as possible. Little do they know what that means. Paul and the team break new ground with this design. In this episode we see a backyard transformed with steel beams, ponds, elevated deck spaces and a suspended steel rod bridge that joins them all together. Did we mention there are three gas fire features as well? Different and daring, this is one transformation you don’t want to miss

THE CIRCULAR PERGOLA DECK
Lori and Ross had an upper level deck that fell down a couple of years ago. Now they pretty much avoid their backyard. This couple loves funky and wants a space that’s peaceful and different. Pretty much the opposite of what they have now. Paul and the team decide to take all of the square angles out of the yard with circles and curves. And build a pergola. But there are pergolas and then there are intricate circular pergolas with cedar slats and steel wire suspension. The pergola is spectacular. Throw in a three-season room, curved staircase, fire pit lounge and bbq area. This is a backyard they’ll never want to leave.

THE TOTAL TRANSFORMATION DECK
Kevin and Pauline’s large yard is a blank slate…and they want to use the entire slate. In this episode we see an incredible transformation. Paul and the crew battle rain, mud and a million details. Jeff takes every square inch of space without a deck and incorporates stone pavers and stone steps. The end result is a private oasis with a full outdoor kitchen, granite topped bars, a pool with waterfalls, pergolas and an enclosed cabana. Spectacular.

THE COTTAGE DECK
Jim and Sofia recently sold their family cottage. This retired couple loves the outdoors and wants a contemporary backyard space that feels like a cottage escape. This episode proves that small is mighty. Paul and the team give this small yard the full treatment and create three distinct deck spaces with intricate angled pergolas, a canvas awning, metal privacy screens and a built-in bbq spot with counters…oh, and a path leading to a stone pad fire pit area with a gorgeous privacy screen. Who needs to sit in weekend traffic?

THE SPIRAL STAIRCASE DECK
Margaret and Dan have a large private backyard they love. The problem is they have no way to get to it from their current deck. The challenge: how do you get from a top deck to a bottom deck without having stairs taking up valuable space? Answer: a spiral staircase. Paul and the team come into this project inspired and build an incredible space that includes an upper deck with a metal spiral staircase leading to a lower deck with a hot tub area (with a motorized gazebo-like cover), bar and lounge, which then leads to a circular aerial structure with a circular stone pad beneath. Now that they can get to their yard, they’ll never want to leave.

THE TIKI BAR DECK
Silvina and Andrew are a tonne of fun. This couple loves to be different and different is what they’re going to get. When you ask Paul to build you a space that feels like you’re in the Caribbean…he’s going to take that to heart. In this episode Paul and the gang take a boring townhouse backyard and turn it into a resort. Docks inspire the deck spaces: there’s a tiki bar, a lounge area with a thatched cabana roof, turned cedar piers and bamboo…everywhere. Paul took a big chance on this one. And the results are simply amazing.
