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.
The Mega Deck team tears down a dilapidated and useless deck to make room for a $200,000 rustic retreat. But, when an engineer nixes the timber-framed roof design, the crew's got to think quickly on their feet. Even with design changes and delayed materials, they're able to create a space with a fireplace, skylights, a fire pit, pergola, and rustic accents in under three months.
The biggest demo in Mega Decks history gets underway by tearing down 1500 square feet of stucco. Then, steel framing and 500 pound beams go up to support three different roof styles. A pergola, a flat roof with a skylight, and a gable roof with a skylight all protect this family from the sun, the wind, and the unpredictable Colorado weather. Plus, replacing the stucco with wrought iron rails and staircase opens up the views for this family.
The Mega Deck team has to turn a sunroom, concrete patio, and dirt landing by the pond into one cohesive space. After tearing out the sunroom, they build a steel framed deck with a flat roof that's connected to the existing patio. Then, they create a walkway that leads down to a new, concrete patio by the pond. While everything up by the house has a modern and zen-like feel, the retreat by the pond is much more natural with stone seating and a fire pit.
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.
It's the Mega team to the rescue, as they overhaul an ugly, exposed and downright dangerous deck disaster. They face challenging weather, rotting wood and even an infestation while transforming two separate and unusable spaces into a sprawling, year-round retreat. With two fire features, custom stone-work, pizza oven and glass walls this space is a four-season cohesive masterpiece. The team builds a custom granite floor in the outdoor kitchen, brightens up the space with a massive skylight and injects the homeowners artsy personal style into this unique project.
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.
The team builds their biggest and most expensive masterpiece over four months on a $750,000 budget. Big problems start after finishing the deck, when freezing temperatures put an indefinite hold on finishing the pool. In the end, it will all be worth the wait for a luxurious space with a heated patio, giant pool, hot tub and private master suite deck.
The Mega Deck team faces unbelievable hurdles with this project: a nearly impassable access road, crazy mountain weather, and a build site that sits on top of a granite boulder, all at an elevation of 9000 ft in Estes Park, CO. But, the build team can sit back and enjoy someone else doing the heavy lifting when they get a helicopter to fly a 1000 lb. spiral staircase to the deck instead of hauling it up themselves. And, at the end, the gable-covered deck with skylights, a custom kitchen, and recessed glass panels, is exactly what the homeowners needed in order to fully enjoy their mountain retreat all year 'round!
A young family calls the team for help with their unsafe wooden deck that's falling apart. Garth and the team face a huge challenge transforming this rickety eyesore into a two-story masterpiece with a stone kitchen and bar, fire and water features and a spiral staircase.
It took a phone call from their daughter for the Mega Crew to jumpstart this deck, but that doesn't mean the whole family isn't thrilled to get it done! The plan is to demo a 1970s-era sunroom and small, disjointed deck to create one space where they can cook, eat, entertain and stay warm. A stone-clad kitchen, two-sided fireplace, water features and custom privacy wall work together to create a cozy and functional space that the whole family can enjoy. And while no-show inspectors, measurement miscalculations and unpredictable spring snow storms all threaten to bring this build to a halt, the crew plows on to close this one out in just eleven weeks.
Gazing from a cramped deck is no way to take in gorgeous mountain views, so the Mega Team has big plans to knock it down and create a larger, enclosed space that the homeowners can enjoy throughout the year. But as the crew uncovers a retaining wall below, the plans for expansion come into question. They also battle cold temperatures, icy terrain and hoisting a 500-pound door over the edge of a 25-foot cliff. In the end, the custom fire rail, full glass enclosure, skylight, custom kitchen and private master suite deck make it worth all the effort.
