All About Backyard Builds

Backyard Builds highlights the endless opportunities found in our outdoor spaces. While most home shows focus on renovating the inside of the house, Backyard Builds aims to transform how we think about our backyards. From a cake studio, to a parent’s only hideaway to a tree house with a zip line, Brian and Sarah work with the homeowners to maximize their outdoor potential and create incredibly unique spaces tailored specifically to their family.

Whether you’re outgrowing your space, feeling crammed and unable to fulfill your passions, or want an epic backyard for your kids, no task is out of the question on Backyard Builds.

The Episodes Featuring Gentek’s Products

Tree house Village – April 6 2017

Every child dreams of having a tree house in their backyard, but these parents went one step further, working with Brian and Sarah to design an entire tree house village on their one-acre forested property. Ideal for the new blended family, the oasis has everything from a meditation room to a family lounge and a zip line. The tree house is equipped with Gentek’s High Performance Regency Windows for durability and maximum energy savings, and Gentek’s gorgeous Shake Siding.

Cake Studio – April 13 2017

See a baker and mother of two get her dream cake studio in the comfort of her own backyard with the use of Gentek’s beautifully crafted Board and Batten Vinyl Siding and Prestige Trims. Not only that, Brian and Sarah incorporate a faux terrain soccer area for the boys, and family-sized deck for her husband. The backyard is transformed into an open-concept living space with something for everyone to enjoy.

His & Hers Hideaway – April 20 2017

With four kids under ten years old, and a busy, busy schedule, this couple needed a secluded space they could call their own. Brian and Sarah help the on-the-go parents create a parent’s only hideaway in their backyard where they can relax and unwind. And no hideaway is complete without doors to keep it private. Gentek’s Doors completed the backyard oasis for the much-deserving parents.
