I love the light streaming through our bedroom windows and like the cathedral ceiling area above the bay.
I dream of a large wrap-around porch but we love our little covered porch. It is just enough room for a couple of chairs and has a vinyl beadboard ceiling that matches trim on the rest of the house.
This past summer we installed a Unilock Brussels Brick patio in our small back yard. We added wide steps from the patio doors that encourages us to get out and enjoy our backyard more.
