Mud Rooms to the Max

Lisa and Jim Morris quickly learned about Maine's mud season when they moved to Portland nine years ago. "We are knee-deep in mud from March through May," Lisa says. Their old mud room was a cramped back hall where everyone bumped into one another. When Lisa and Jim added a garage and master suite, they decided to incorporate a proper mud room: a place where their family members could sit down, take off their boots, and hang up wet clothes. Sweaters, hats, and backpacks hang along a crisp white beadboard wall.

Top 10 Perennials

By now, you're hooked. Your garden is increasingly a perennial one. Your yearly investment in annuals gets smaller and smaller, and every year more and more of your plantings return in the spring. Who was it who said, "Friends don't let friends plant annuals"? Well, that may be a tad harsh. Because many perennials have shortcomings, especially in the frustratingly short length of bloom time. Most annuals bloom all season long, but your standard perennials-- what, four weeks?

Fitting into the old neighborhood

Another old house freshened up with paint and shutters? Guess again; this picturesque cottage in a Detroit suburb is actually brand new from the ground up. Owners Tricia and Rob Wood (left) took great pains to blend their house into its tree-lined neighborhood. Rob, an architect, tested his design skills by working within the foundation's footprint of a tiny house that originally stood on the site. A strict budget added further constraints, but Rob's plan lives twice as big as it looks-- without sacrificing one iota of charm.
