How to Build A Floating Deck | Outdoor Kitchen Part 1

Welcome to the first part of my big 24′ x 34′ Outdoor Kitchen build! In this video, I’ll show you how we framed a large floating deck on concrete pillars. And then how we decked it with the Trex Transcend composite decking system.

At the end of this series, I’ll have a fully functional outdoor kitchen, with a fireplace, kitchen space and much more for outdoor living and entertaining. Be sure to watch the video above to check it out!

The next video will cover framing and roofing the roof. Stay tuned!

A Simple DIY Outdoor Plant Shelf To Disguise Ugly Utility Boxes

A Simple DIY Outdoor Plant Shelf To Disguise Ugly Utility Boxes

When we shared pictures of our front porch last fall, we said that our decorating strategy out here was basically “plants and more plants.” It helps visually connect the porch to all of the greenery surrounding our house and – as we’ll show you today – it’s also helping us hide some less-than-pretty parts of this outdoor area. Let’s call them wall warts. Three large rectangular wall warts. But more on that in a second.

First let’s travel back in time to what this all looked like last February when we put an offer in on this house (that’s our realtor in the photo below)

As you can see, we’ve already come quite a long way (you can read more about the exterior updates we did in this area here & here).

Custom Modern End Table | Turn Wood to Marble!

I am excited about this one! I’ve been wanting to replace the end tables in my living room so that was the inspiration for this build. The base is made from solid walnut while the inside is a square pyramid that looks like a solid piece of marble. But it’s actually wood with epoxy making it look like marble.

Watch the video above to see the whole process!

Wooden Golf Bag Holder! Organize Golf Gear

I’ve I told you I’ve gotten into golf?

The last thing i need is another hobby. But I found golf and now it’s got me. It’s just fine but I found that I end up having golf stuff strewn all over the house. Sleeves of golf balls… shoes, etc. You never know where they’re going to end up.

To fix that, I have built myself a golf bag holder to house my bag and organize my golf stuff. I’ve also built in some shelves to store anything else golf related so that everything has a home within my home to keep things looking nice. And more importantly, findable.

Check out the video above to see how I built it! And if you’d like to build one of your own, I have plans available HERE

You can also check out my video where I built a 2-Bag Golf Stand here: https://youtu.be/FbGCOO8ptjw
