Hi Guys, just watched the latest Outdoor Living Guy Video from our YouTube Channel . . . AGAIN! It’s only 6 days old and yet, has mega views. Easy to see why – 12 Properties, 12 Designs – Backyard Living Rooms individual to each Homeowner. 12 virtually unused spaces that become ‘How do You Like Me Now’ Backyard Showcases. The video shows creative choices when collaborating with our designers, the construction build process, the finished pièce de ré·sis·tance – remarkable spaces, remarkable features. Let’s watch and then we’ll continue . . .
