These homeowners are desperate to have an outdoor living area influenced by their Asian background and modern sense of style, and the Crashers crew gets right to work. First, a natural stone path that uses 2-by-2 square Blue Tudor stepping stones set in gravel leads to a new dining area and lounge space. Then, a 10-by-10 redwood deck is erected just 6 inches above-ground and covered with a bi-level metal roof that's supported by large redwood rafters. The deck will then extend uncovered toward the back corner of the yard. A built-in bench seating area will surround a square sand-filled fire pit that sits flush within the deck. And from both of these spaces, this couple can enjoy the tranquil sound of water trickling down a 6-inch-high metal water wall.
