The teams got out of their houses this week and worked the exterior spaces of their homes. Siding, landscaping, yard activities, decks, and more, this episode was wide-ranging and of course exciting! Host Ty Pennington brought a ton of fun to the episode with yard games and activities for the stars to give a go and paired that with a special challenge. The teams were required to include a yard game into their design to amp up the experience in their outdoor spaces. Judges Mika Kleinschmidt and Brian Kleinschmidt of HGTV's 100 Day Dream Home and Rock the Block season 2 winners came in with sky-high expectations and were blown away by the incredible work of the designers.
Sarah and Bryan Baeumler took home their first win of the season with their Aspen Chalet-styled exterior. The Baeumlers thought of everything and packed this episode with buyer-friendly features that ultimately won over the judges. A Colorado-inspired exterior was beautifully done and included a mix of materials that blended with the scenery. A delightfully staged main deck led to a built-in grill space wrapped in the same stone featured on the exterior and interior of the home. A Red Rocks inspired fire pit area was executed perfectly for future chilly evenings. The game challenge was a Denver International Airport inspired parkour course.
Page Turner and Mitch Glew carved their own path this week. The duo used dark colors with stone accents to create a chic feel to the exterior. They installed a whimsical side path around the side of the home leading to the back yard with its own large scale chess board built in. A large deck with their living room feature ceiling continued outside and a large fireplace highlighted the upper level. A built in outdoor kitchen on the lower level was placed smartly near their basement kitchen.
Kristina Crestin and Jonathan Knight went with a lot of varied textures and colors to draw the eye into the front door on their modern farmhouse home. A cozy fireplace and grilling area complete with a grill and smoker highlighted the upper level. A wonderful outdoor seating area led to a bocce ball court on the lower level.
Michel Smith Boyd and Anthony Elle kept the mountain modern vibes rolling with their incredible exterior. With finishes expected to last a lifetime, their exterior offered a sustainable option. An ampitheater complete with projection screen made for the perfect space to host a home movie night. The back of the screen was a fun climbing wall perfect for kids. The living spaces on both levels featured unique fireplaces ideal for warming up.
