The backyard is an urban oasis in the heart of the city. Steps from the more secluded rear deck is this outdoor seating area. Throughout the year the couple grow herbs and vegetables, and they host an annual spring flea market, a Christmas party with German mulled wine (Glühwein) and numerous bonfires and barbecues. The roof of the semienclosed workshop hangs over the space, allowing some respite from summer showers.

[M] Don't like the brick patio and the inverted roof that sheds water towards the structure. I do like the corrugated metal, the old wood, the grass, and the old brick wall.
