Outdoor Living: Connecting Your Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

The old saying goes that “home is where you hang your hat” but for a lot of us, that isn’t good enough. For some, a home isn’t someplace you live, but a place you live to be.  It’s a place where you are surrounded by family and friends.  It’s more than just four walls, a kitchen, some bathrooms, and a place to sleep.  You have worked to make your house a home.  Home is a place to relax, to entertain, and a place to interact with the people in your life.  It’s a place to find comfort and get away from it all, but also a place to be social and a space to share with others.  But your home doesn’t just begin and end at the threshold of your front door.  Your home is whatever you want to make it!  And your outdoors aren’t anymore a place where you just put water on your lawn anymore than your home is some kind of glorified hat rack!

There is a whole other aspect of your home just waiting for you outside your doors.  For someone with your enthusiasm for DIY projects, it’s all within your reach!
