Before & After: Sherry and John’s Sweet Hangout

before, after, makeover, porch

I’ve mentioned before how much I love rooms that feel like they’re an extension of the landscape, and today I found one that I am pretty excited about. I used to follow Young House Love back when Sherry and John were remodeling their first house, and I couldn’t wait to do that kind of stuff to my own house. Well, I kind of fell off the DIY weekend warrior bandwagon when I realized that I work on the weekends and when I do have a weekend off, it seems that I’m more of a weekend wanderer than a weekend warrior. But anyway back to the space…here is where they are with it now:

They ripped out the windows and ceiling and did a few other things as well, turning it into one huge lounge space. It looks like it would be a pretty great house to have a party at, don’t you think? I’m really digging it so far, and I love their vision behind this. Of course, it’s still a work in progress, but I think it already looks awesome as-is. Nice work, as usual, Sherry and John! -erin

Business here has shifted a bit….less big projects and more little projects.  I think I might actually like it better right now.  I have…

FlowerBox Garden Buildings

Mac Carbonell created The Flowerbox Building on the lower east side of NYC in 2007. It is a remarkable inspiration particularly for any building that could use a little push when it comes to creating landmark status. Study this building and imagine it without the plants – nice windows, but fairly unremarkable architecture (as urban…
