The garden between the buildings becomes part of the living space. What a great way to make room for the families while keeping costs down (and it's beautiful too).

Thank-you for featuring a story on a lovely classic home! Even if Cape Cod real estate prices are beyond reach for most of us, the timeless style shown is inspiring for readers who want to invest in home interiors that will resist looking dated. I enjoy reading about trends, but I can't afford to redecorate every few years. Traditional style, done with a fresh perspective, is a more practical approach for many of us who need to prioritize and live comfortably but within our means. I want to live with lovely things acquired over a lifetime, not something I rushed out to buy because it's the latest fad! Please give us more articles like this!

I live on Cape Cod, design landscapes in the residential sector and know how expensive living here has become. I am grateful for the folks whose resources allow for this kind of property but dismayed when they use the professionals from their former residence or primary home area. Down here we have many talented people who need to make a living to stay on Cape. This is a lovely property and I admire what the owners and designers have achieved.

Friends of ours were getting rid of a comfortable but faded sleeper sofa. Got a slipcover on clearance for $50 and are enjoying it in our family room!

Yes, I do like them and find it very convenient. I also couldn't part with old very good quality sofas and made slipcovers. One more use fore slipcovers are mattresses. I did one for a daybed in my house and now I am looking for a fabric to do for my vacation home spare bedroom mattress.

When we built our house 12 years ago, we raised the kitchen ceiling from what the original plans showed. This left a vertical wall up near the ceiling. We decided to put a wallpaper mural up there and because the mural was wider than the vertical wall we had left over on both ends. By raising the kitchen ceiling it changed the layout of what was to be the guest bedroom. We found that we could have 70 square feet of storage which we use for holiday decoration storage. Since there are two closets in the bedroom plus the door into the bedroom I did not want two more doors on the wall. We came up with the idea of covering plywood with the two left over pieces of the kitchen mural. And making them look like windows, rebuilt some wooden shutters so they would fit the opening. Also used the left over beadboard from the kitchen ceiling for the wainscotting in the bedroom. Guests can't help but open the storage doors to see what's there. I usually have 4 ft nutcrackers staring back at them.
