Where the heck did this past month go? It feels like we just started thinking about finishing our backyard and now we’re almost at the finish line. To put things into perspective… there was snow on the ground just a few weeks ago and yesterday it felt like 32 degrees celsius here in Burlington, Ontario. So what has happened in our backyard this week? A whole lot! Welcome to Week 5 of the One Room Challenge.


Here’s a look at what we started with:

What happened this week:

  • Concrete was poured
  • Furniture was ordered and delivered
  • BBQ was delivered
  • Accessories were sourced

What’s left to do?

  • Landscape shopping and design
  • Some fun DIY projects (I’ve got about three ideas and very little time)
  • Source area rugs
  • Decorate!

Are you excited to see the full reveal? Here’s a sneak peek of our backyard’s current status. It’s already had quite the makeover and the furniture isn’t even in place yet.

Check back next Thursday May 10th for the full reveal.
