like the spaces, like the great room - very similar to what we had at the cottage, except actually wide enough to fit a sofa in. Lots of storage space. Courtyard entry again. And guest suite upstairs over garage - could be an apartment, or re-jigged into a home gym and "dormitory" for extended family visits.
String Dispensers Here’s a great way to reuse empty CD/DVD containers. Drill a hole in the top for the string to slide through, then screw the lid under a shelf and snap on the string-loaded container. Pull down and snip off the desired length and never worry that your ball of string will roll away across the floor dragging its tail behind it!
