It's a Wrap

If the kitchen is the heart of a home, the front porch is the soul. So, when Janet and Stephen Conran took on the loving restoration of their late-1800s Victorian in Newtonville, Massachusetts, they made sure the wraparound porch was more than just an outdoor extension of the inside living space.

Friendly Face for the Neighborhood

Retirement and the wish to settle in a quiet, historic community brought Betty and Paul Hagedorn to Jacksonville, Oregon. A moratorium on new construction, however, led the couple to buy a fixer-upper that was built as a gold miner's shack in the late 1800s. "It had been added onto and was a mess," Betty says. "Our children thought we were crazy to take this on, but I had a vision of what it could be."

Going for the Light

The original layout of this remodeled kitchen wasn't just inefficient-- it was downright dangerous. Locating the sink on one side of the room and the range on the other put steaming cookware on a collision course with pedestrian traffic. Three door openings added to the congestion.

Shaping plants into sculpture

Topiary-- the art of trimming and training plants into ornamental shapes-- calls for the eye of a sculptor and a gardener's green thumb. While the sheared topiaries of formal gardens can take years to attain a recognizable form, the tabletop versions are instantly satisfying.

Three bath upgrades

For a brief time during childhood, most of us probably liked the bathroom. There were squishy bubbles, squeaky rubber birds, and plastic boats that sailed and sank in the seas. At some point, though, bathroom time became a hassle. Tight space, paired with hectic routines, often pitted family members against each other in battles for shower and mirror time. But you can boost your bath's function with a roomier layout, and polish its look with new fixtures and finishes. From there on out, it's smooth, sudsy sailing.
