Urban Outsiders At Our Home

HGTV came out and redid our backyard in Los Angeles for their new show Urban Outsiders. This blog follows the entire journey and will be updated as the show airs. Entries are listed from recent to oldest-- just like with most blogs-- so if you want the whole story from the beginning, start in the archives.

HGTV - Day 2 - The Great Cover Up!

When the crew came yesterday they warned us that on days 2 and 3 it looks like nothing really happens even though they have done a lot of work. I didn't take an end of day shot since today it's just ended now at 8pm and the light is gone, but I'll do it first thing in the morning.

Today, though, the guys did our "fancy" interview; we wore collared shirts. They then shot us living our real lives in our real environment; we made martinis.
In terms of the yard, the guys built the cedar wood cover that will hide this lovely washer unit, which up until now has been the only "water feature" in our yard. The cover looks fantastic and it will match the cedar paneling that will disguise the back and side walls as well. They then built in the planters, and that's what the guys were working on until now.

Here's a pic of the guys building our box.

In theory, we're painting tomorrow and the tiles are going in. We'll see. I'm becoming very Zen about this, since tomorrow we're supposed to have thunder storms. Mind you, today it was 75-80 degrees and not a cloud in the sky.

Send up a prayer that it all holds...
