Great Outdoors

We were getting close to finishing Drew and Linda’s Honeymoon House—well, the inside of it, anyway! Now it’s time to tackle the outside, where we worked to keep the historic charm up front while transforming up a very overgrown backyard.

Before & After


The key to curb appeal at Drew and Linda’s home started with the front door: a beautiful wooden arched piece that needed some love and renewal. Luckily, we had just the right person for the job: Brett Waterman, of DIY Network’s Restored. He was kind enough to totally restore the front door as a wedding present to Drew and Linda, and the result was nothing short of stunning.


The backyard was a bit of a mess when Drew and Linda bought the house, with overgrown trees and patches of grass and weeds—not to mention the giant wall of ivy we had to literally pull off the back of the house! We used every square inch of the yard to create a peaceful place to take a swim, sit by the fire or play games in the yard. We wanted to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living in this space, and we think we succeeded.


The house originally had a small balcony that you could only access through a window—and once you got out there, it was even less safe. By building up a new outdoor deck, we were able to create a more formal outdoor dining area, as well as a casual hangout spot and our personal favorite: the hot tub. This space now has something for everyone, along with a beautiful sunset view.
