EPIC Back Yard Transformation - Pt. 1 Demolition

Sam just bought a house, and now we have one more place to start renovating. Last summer, we did a deck on my house, and it turned out to be insanely beautiful. Now this summer, it’s Sam’s turn.

Pouring Concrete Outdoor Counters - EPIC Backyard Transformation Pt. 5

We built these incredible counters in our last episode of the outdoor kitchen renovation, but we didn’t show you how to make the countertops — we saved that for this video. You might have seen the result in the last episode, but you’re going to want to check out how we put together these bad boys.

RIDGID OCTANE Brushless 18V 1 in. SDS-plus Rotary Hammer Review

I’m a big believer that there’s more than one way to get the job done in most cases. You can take the back roads or the highway to end up at the same location. You can use domino joinery or dovetail joinery and create a solid piece of furniture. You can crack open a beer from a bottle or a can, and I’m still going to drink it.
