    The home is superbly done! Every detail is impeccably crafted and designed. What a blessing for the community and for the Child Advocacy Center.

    My husband and I just finished watching your last episode and the house is fabulous. We are going to be starting in the next month or so a very large remodel on our own home and your back family room and porch with stairs to the backyard is a lot like our condition and what we will be doing. We liked your use of the fiberon decking with brick stairs and transitioning onto paver tiles… Can you let me know what the color was that used for the fiberon decking material? Also, what paver tile did you use and what is its color?

    Lastly, the wood flooring inside is very nice. Is it a prefab wood floor or is it a custom wood floor? If it is prefab, who is it by and what color is it?

    Thanks so much for sharing your fabulous project and in advance, for answering my questions.

    Hi Darlene,
    The Fiberon decking we used on the back porch of the Kuppersmith Project house had an Ipe finish color. You can find out more at
    The flooring in the existing house is the original, solid heart pine flooring that has been sanded, stained, and refinished. For the floors in the additions to the house, solid heart pine lumber from old beams was remilled into flooring, then stained and finished to match the existing floors. You can find out more at
    Thank you for your interest!
