Making Room Outdoors

Creating a Cookout Corner

Today, backyard grilling involves much more than broiling burgers over the fire. Entire meals-- from tuna steak to tomatoes-- are cooked on the grill.

Ford's movable feat: Power pedals

Vertically challenged drivers will love the power-adjustable brake and accelerator pedals on Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators, two full-size sport utility vehicles. But even people endowed with long legs soon discover that being able to move the pedals with the touch of a button makes it easier to find a comfortable position behind the wheel of these hot-selling big rigs. The pedals move in tandem, enabling short drivers to sit farther from the steering wheel-- thus, farther from the air bag, which is less dangerous when it deploys with you sitting at least 10 inches away.

One small garden, 10 Big ideas

Like most yards in postcard-perfect Carmel, California, this oak-shaded postage stamp was tiny-- really tiny. But one thing Kathy and Peter Henney's little garden did have room for was improvement.

Summer style

As their getaway cottage shaped up, Kay and Jack McKallagat and their two daughters made a family pact: Easy does it on the decorating. Bright white backdrops, breezy fabrics, and "Nana's attic" furnishings make their rooms as relaxing as a day at the beach. "It's casualness. It's ease. It's like wearing flip-flops," says Kay. Come inside to see how a light design touch and a comfort-first vision can translate into a forever-summer house for you.

Backyard living

Summer is the time to trade in many of the comforts you enjoy the rest of the year. Turn off the hot oven and fire up the grill. Exchange that steamy cup of tea for a fresh, fruity drink. And enjoy a favorite read by the light of the lingering sun-- instead of the lamp. All the while, drink in the season's beauty: its blossoms, its lightning bugs, its breezes. There's no better place to experience this delight than on a backyard deck, patio, or sunroom.
