Stylish Outdoor Living Room An unused driveway is transformed into a patio. The homeowner converted her garage into a music studio and the driveway into a sitting nook and dining area using striking furniture and bold fabrics. Yews and boxwood add texture and up the privacy. A grapevine ball filled with twinkle lights adds mood lighting for summer entertaining.

I love these walls - from the post: For the board and batten on the side walls, we just used pre-primed MDF 1×2′s from Home Depot. They were super simple to put up with our nail gun, and because our baseboard and crown molding are flat, everything finished out nice and neat.
Quaint Cottage Home (House & Home) White hydrangea shrubs look stunning en masse. The homeowners transformed the original cinder-block exterior of this Caledon, Ont., home by covering it with board-and-batten siding and adding a standing-seam metal roof.
