  • they gotta be careful with their yeah coffee breaks it's nobody smokes or

  • nothing get better breaks a water break I gotto okay all of that. a but let's rewind a bit so I can

  • tell you how exactly we ended up with Jeff in our backyard it all started with

  • an email from home run vision DIY last December Jeff and his wife Michelle had

  • watched some of the video Sam and I filmed barbecuing with my dad in the

  • backyard and of course our concrete slab of the deck had made a bit of an

  • appearance their expertise saw a potential DIY project so they sent us an

  • email to see if we were interested in a collab their channel teaches homeowners

  • how to tackle home renovation projects big or small and they could envision a

  • backyard oasis perfect for staycation I told my parents about this email I had

  • received and it took them all of five seconds to say yes yes please

  • so here we are but now we'll let Jeff tell you the plan we originally were

  • just going to come down and do a really simple kind of pressure-treated lumber

  • you know resurfacing but we got lucky so a partner who's helped us out we're

  • putting in a Brazilian IPE deck which is a hard wood exterior product that's like

  • no maintenance we're gonna put a sealer on it and then we'll check back with you

  • in about ten years and see how it's doing really so really what it is is

  • it's a DIY project with really high-end amazing materials that have been

  • designed for DIY installation so we're gonna help Sam learn a few skills put

  • together a nice pergola some Sun Shade finally we're gonna see Samuel with a

  • hammer using some material and I've already pinched my hand and oh well

  • blood sweat and tears that's why I went here

  • so what did we get up to on the first day you asked well we were mostly

  • sorting the wood that had been delivered double-checking measurements getting to

  • know each other and also feasting this is a latin-american household so it

  • wasn't long before homemade empanadas and wine entered the picture so we

  • didn't get started on the build but we did some of the prep work and ate like

  • kings and queens we're getting nothing done

  • we're gonna have the best siesta ever

  • day 2 early morning and we have come to Home Depot to pick up some extra

  • supplies that we need wood lumber here we have them in the back doing their

  • numbers

  • nice we got a seven I needed seven of those shopping mission completed

  • look at all the stuff we got guys like he came to it was like 500 600 600 Canadian dollars unity

  • in there and this is going to allow us add an addition oh sorry we have to go

  • the other way oh so oh it's opening you open sesame'

  • now to load the truck out a little bit

  • you get a nice little trick it we're gonna nice a little fire security

  • since our concrete slab was on the smaller side of things Jeff decided to

  • build a deck extension so we spent the morning working on that

  • Sam and I were tasked with digging holes for the concrete blocks some of the

  • holes were neater than others but more on that in a second

  • Togo the project manager inspecting that everything's turning out okay I

  • think we need to show you guys holes Sam would you like to showcase the the hole

  • you dug tell us all about it this one that's like the size of a bathtub yeah
