Danny did satellite media tours about “staycations” from my back porch on May 20th that reached over 100 TV and radio stations. This is command central, inside the satellite truck. My SMT featured products from Fiberon, Phantom Screens and JELD-WEN.
Spring has arrived and summer isn’t far behind, making this the ideal time to enhance the outdoor living space on your home. Read on to find out how I created the ultimate, low maintenance, backyard retreat to accommodate everything from a relaxing family cookout to formal outdoor entertaining.
After 200 days of renovation and remodeling, followed by two weeks of decorating from the design team at Better Homes & Gardens and Renovation Style magazines, the Kuppersmith Project house is finally finished, and it’s time to take the grand tour!
We’re tackling a number of projects outside on the Kuppersmith Project, including installing motorized retractable screens and pouring a colored concrete driveway. Inside we’re putting in a shower surround and putting down a tile floor in the bathroom.
In addition to the composite decking used on the porch floor of the Kuppersmith Project house renovation, we also installed a low-maintenance composite fencing around the backyard and composite handrails on the back porch. Watch this video to find out more.
Next up in our extensive renovation of the 1926 Kuppersmith Project house, we installed foam insulation in the walls and attic, hung drywall, painted the exterior, and began installing the kitchen cabinets. Read on to find out more.
We installed low maintenance, composite decking with an ipê finish on the floor of the Kuppersmith Project house porch. Hidden deck fasteners with stainless steel screws were used to keep from marring the look of the porch floor. Watch this video to find out more.
With the additions to our 1926 Kuppersmith Project house framed up and the roofing on, the next big step was roughing in all the plumbing, wiring, and ductwork so we can get started installing the insulation and drywall in the house.
I’m out at the Kuppersmith Project house, and it’s incredible how great the composite deck and railing looks. We installed it using a hidden fastener system, so there are no nails or screws visible, but it’s still very secure. Watch this video to find out more.
This is Mark the foreman, and he’s installing the back deck with planks from Fiberon. They’re actually made of composite material, and that means they last longer than wood, and require less maintenance.
