Sea Ranch Cabin by Nick Noyes,
Gorgeous white farmhouse cottage porch wendy posard
Pretty setting for this simple tent cabin.
Love the checkerboard paving - if you were careful about the 'grass' you planted, you wouldn't need to mow (e.g. microlaena, chamomile, thyme, creeping mint, even violas...) I've always loved this idea, but having to continually maintain it put me off. Love the idea of a ground cover that wouldn't need to be mown secret gardens, lawn, chess boards, alice in wonderland, garden paths, side yards, patio, backyard, stepping stones
checkered grass and paver patio - so clever
