Some bridal houses design their collections to complement each other. That is, the house designs a collection of dresses in different styles that come in an array of up to 20 or more colors. The only decision you have to make is the color of the dress. Each bridesmaid will choose the cut of the dress: strapless, halter, jewel neckline, etc. Some designers even let your bridesmaids choose separates, for a better fit. (Separates are a skirt and a top, each of which fits some people better.) Your bridesmaids are in control, and probably more comfortable when they choose the design.

Once your patio is installed, it is time to personalize your space. Again consider your home’s overall feel. Rustic patio furniture will look out of place next to a home built with Victorian design house plans. Look for good quality furniture that is designed to stand up to the elements. Fabrics should be weather and fade resistant. This is especially important if you plan to leave your furniture outside year round. If you plan to store your furniture, make sure you have adequate storage space. Make sure the furniture you pick is comfortable. Add some plants or art. Mobiles and spinners add a sense of movement to the space. Wind chimes and water features can be soothing. You do not have to spend a lot of money to have a fun space that reflects your style.

The exterior of the house is an important aspect in choosing. A great exterior would be attractive to most people, but likes in appearance can abruptly change. You can easily modify exterior features like windows, wall color, roof, and doors. Therefore, exterior appearance is second from the interior design of the house. What’s inside your home is important. The interior features should be checked carefully. Comfort should be prioritized, not only the design and furniture.

If the fascia board is solid, simply add hidden hangers and raise the sagging area. Fasten with 1 1/2″ zip screws. If the fascia board is rotted, temporarily remove the gutter and remove the rotted fascia board as well. Once the fascia has been replaced, rehang or reinstall the gutter with proper pitch.

An outdoor playhouse is a magical experience for any child at certain ages. I certainly remember my own ‘uncle’, Mr Wood of all names, who built my outside den and I am still grateful to this day. I am 62! It was green, beautiful and had an upper floor balustrade. By the way, he was seventy-seven when he built it. It still sits in the backyard and nowadays is considered quite a feature.
