Spring was my most favorite season of the year until the pandemic hit. I am thankful I am alive this Holy Week and that I could still make a difference serving mankind. I look forward to Bobby’s ideas and design recommendations.
I am thankful March Madness is over and I can finally get back into doing few of the things that makes me happy; serving mankind, running and focusing on designing my dream home office with a splash of colors to give life to my walls and outdoor furniture Bobby recommended.
I love watching the sunset off my patio and cooking outdoor.
We moved into our house 5 years ago. It’s our first house and the most adorable little bungalow. It has a 150′ deep yard that backs onto a park. I don’t really know what to do with the space. A lot of it is sloped, and there’s a huge (but gorgeous) spruce at the bottom of the yard that takes up a lot of space. There’s also hedges, which we didn’t realize would be such a pain to maintain, and no fencing, which is keeping us from getting a dog. I do have some ideas, but I don’t know how realistic they are budget-wise.
It really depends on how you want to use the space. I would carve out an area for seating or dining first and create a flat surface with pavers, which are a less expensive option than a deck or a concrete pad. You’ll definitely want to enjoy such a large and green space this summer! xx -B
I am alive and ready for my new outdoor life. Thank you Bobby! I just shared your post with my retired friends in Southern California.
I own a five bedroom house in Belize, Central America and your design and furniture gave me hope. Watching the sunset off my patio, cooking and barbecuing outdoor when I am not running with my team mates is what I missed most during this pandemic in addition to helping to advocate for our schools and children.
Love your design and ideas.
Thanks so much for your comment! Your home in Belize sounds beautiful and I hope you’re able to enjoy the outdoors with your friends and family soon. Stay safe! xx -B
