Back in the crazy concept dept.: in addition to a side yard deck outside the kitchen .. integrating an outdoor living area / room where we could dine outdoors a fair number of months out of the year ??
The power of branches and vines, once more. While we wouldn't need an installation this large, I cannot overstate the potential of foliage to uplift any centerpiece or design, large or small. Subtle, powerful, and dramatic. More
like the porch but don't want to cut off light to the big house main floor or basement - like the natural light that comes into the basement. Wonder if we should turn the basement level garage into a proper bedroom and add a ground level garage over top.
