Check Out How Kris Jenner and the Property Brothers Transform an Outdoor Experience on Celebrity IOU
Drew and Jonathan Scott Rescue Kris Jenner's Friend's Backyard, Redesigning it Into a Stunning Outdoor Retreat.
The Property Brothers are two of the most well-known and successful designers on television, regularly coming up with new ideas for everyday problems. They recently collaborated with entrepreneur and TV icon Kris Jenner on Celebrity IOU to do something life-changing for her dear friend, Lisa. After her spouse passed away, Lisa returned to the area where she had grown up, and Kris wanted to give her a one-of-a-kind outdoor experience. Drew and Jonathan Scott were overjoyed to be a part of the project, which promised an exquisite personal hideaway.
“Lisa’s home was in a great location, but she didn’t have the time or ability to work on her yard, which was almost entirely vacant (save for an empty swimming pool).”
Celebrity IOU follows some of Hollywood's most famous people as they give significant others in their lives life-changing home renovations. In each episode, Drew and Jonathan Scott assists one star in transforming their special someone's home into something exceptional. Episode five features Kris enlisting the help of daughters Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner to build a gourmet custom outdoor kitchen, repair the broken pool, install a new custom pool, and construct an outdoor fireplace and social area. We're delighted that Drew and Jonathan included American Made Grills in this once-in-a-lifetime gift.
“Lisa had a pool -- or, as Drew called it, a cesspool -- that we initially discussed repairing.”
For years, Lisa's backyard had remained untouched in a gorgeous location, and it needed a lot of work. The Scott brothers were able to provide Lisa with the outside space she never thought she'd have. They demolished her previous swimming pool, which had long been empty and broken, and in its place built a cozy fireside sitting area where guests could unwind after a long day. They installed a beautiful modern pool on the opposite side of the property with tranquil landscaping, pool loungers, umbrellas, and an outdoor living area.
“While Jonathan wasn't initially thrilled with the drastic change, it was the right call…”
The team built a custom-everything outdoor kitchen with everything Lisa could need to round out the outside experience, including an Estate Grill from American Made Grills and a matching side burner. They fitted these stainless steel champions into one of two custom islands to create a galley-style kitchen. Each island is modern and elegant, with waterfall counters and plenty of counter space for prepping and serving. The grill island also features a matching backsplash with an upper shelf for storage and a double refrigerator from our sister company, Summerset Grills.
“Lisa's kitchen will become the oasis she needs to achieve the tranquility she deserves.”
The second island is stocked with a built-in dry storage pantry, trash drawer, dry storage cabinet, and built-in sink to keep the space clean and sparkling. Thanks to the sintered stone worktops and picturesque Southern California weather, Lisa's kitchen will become the sanctuary she desires.
Lisa was thrilled by the results and compassion of Kris, Kim, Kendall, Drew, Jonathan, and the Celebrity IOU crew at the reveal. Thanks to the Property Brothers, this barren plot of ground has become a lush olive grove. Now, she can relax by the fire on a chilly evening beneath a heated blanket and her favorite trees. We are grateful for being involved in this project as the Scott Brothers applied their creative talents to bring happiness and inspiration to a wonderful woman.
If you didn't get a chance to watch the premiere, keep your eyes open for re-airings throughout the summer. For a detailed list, go to HGTV.
