Before & After: Sherry and John’s Sweet Hangout

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?

New England Spring Flower Show – Gone

I read a story in The Metro West Daily News this morning about the demise of the New England Spring Flower show.  It is an event that has been put on by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society for 136 years.  I am sad that so many people will miss the event and that so many businesses…
