Before & After: A New Hangout for this Rural Backyard

dreamstateinspbefore

I really enjoy reading stories about people who take huge leaps when buying a home and this is a great example. Kristina and her boyfriend lived in busy Portland, Oregon when they decided they were due for a change. After searching high and low for almost 2 years, they finally found a gem of a house in the beautiful rural countryside.

The couple saw potential in their new yard and knew that it was perfect for a tiny campsite. They got to work right away…branches were chosen for the tipi and a small guest house was built and painted. They tidied up the fire pit area and split lots of wood for fires. Of course, there were a lot of other things they did in order to bring the yard to life, although Kristina says that they still have a lot of work to do. But for now, I think things are looking great! Nice job Kristina!

Rain Music Garden Umbrella

Intriguing new design always captures my attention, I am wondering if this will add to the joy of sitting in the garden in the rain, or compeltely detract  (I am guessing the later) but I would certainly like to give it a try to see how different the rain can sound. Designed by Dong Min…
