Oregon also offers yurt camping in their state parks, including on the coast.

Two things: if there's no air circulation to the mattress, your bed may get moldy, and Bed Bath and Beyond's boxspring cover works fine until you wash it and then it's impossible to get back on.

Whatever your choice of paint - make sure it's something that complements your skin tone. Green, yellow, orange, not such good effects.

I have a bed and headboard from WE, and both are sturdy and well-made. WE is the lower-priced branch of the Williams-Sonoma brand along with Pottery Barn.

So there's lots of structure on this roof but am I missing the plants? What's going to be "in full bloom" in the summer? Plants, life, color, dude!

Can sooo relate to the issue of quirks at a new home....Moved recently into a new place with a gas stove. Decided to bake something for Mother's Day dinner for my mother in-law and her husband, only to discover that there were a variety of controls for the gas/convection oven which, of course, I didn't know how to use, having been stuck with electric ovens for many years. And only then did I realize that I hadn't even bothered to look at the controls before starting the cooking process:) After pushing various combinations, I finally managed to turn the thing on and even get nicely done salmon at the end of the process. Egads! A very flustered moment for me.

The idea of a languid lay-about/nap in the garden sounds divine. Love the options presented here, but on my budget it may only be a cot with some bamboo poles and string beans.

This charming home brings up an issue that's been bothering me for some time: why o why is the coffee table in the middle of the room, miles from the nearest chair and sofa? Did I miss that design memo?

Love the aesthetic, but would definitely not want to look at myself across the table or bed! Just does something to my feng shui, eh!

One of the benefits I love about small - less time to clean your little home!

I grew up in a 400 sq ft house with four people, and lived in equally tiny places most of my life. Now it's nice to finally have a place with a bit more room (1200 sq ft) and some storage, a place for a Christmas tree and room for a dinner party of 12, and a guy with an upright bass.
