When indoor space isn’t enough, Backyard Builds showcases the endless opportunities outdoor areas can provide. The HGTV series stars contractor and designer Brian McCourt alongside design expert Sarah Keenleyside who work with homeowners to maximize their backyard’s potential by creating tailored, one-of-a-kind spaces. We were happy to be featured in Season 1, Episode 5 where Keenleyside and McCourt turn an old garage into a cool kids’ music and arts hangout.
Homeowners Ali and Hana have two talented young children—and a very noisy and crowded house. Their daughter, Mila, enjoys everything from painting to violin, while their son, Mateja, loves to play drums. Mila's new art room is bright and airy, with plenty of storage. It’s separated from Mateja's new music room by an industrial-inspired sliding barn door that offers privacy. The music room also features a traditional garage door which makes it easy to haul gear in and out, while the acoustic wall tiles provide visual interest and absorb sound.
We love what the Backyard Builds team did to extend this family’s living space. Keenleyside and McCourt blow the conceptions about what a backyard space can be completely out of the water. We’re looking forward to watching the rest of this series!
