To those who are looking for a tub like this: Since the availability of these are always in flux from supplier to supplier, and since the product links provided invariably change, the best way to find this type of tub is to try a Google image search for "drop in round soaking tub". This will lead you to several (current) suppliers.

You'll need about 1'-9" depth for the benches, although you could go a little less. If the table were 5' long you should be able to fit this into an 8' long space. For depth, if the table is, say 3.5' wide you'd need another 1.5' on top of that, so about 5' for depth. See attached image from this project..

When we bought our house it had seven doors with woven metal openings--upper and lower. Thought they were cool until we found out the previous owner salvaged them from an early 1900's prison.

Wow, such an enthusiastic response! Apparently the need for whimsy, warmth, and a sense of play in our abodes is still alive and strong. A few years ago I designed this mountain home on a whim, just to play with this form and have a little fun in the process.. more renderings may be seen here:

Dana, that sounds wonderful! That's certainly an ideal I aim to fulfill someday. Best wishes on your endeavor!

My first impression was that your garage was too square, so I love the picture Pamela Bateman posted with the curved top garage doors & trim. Can you add some of the roof support/beam looking things (sorry don't know what they're called) under the eaves like in Madson Design's cabin drawing above? Also if you can make the roof line of the portico & dormer a little more droopy/curvy like the curved roof on the corner?

I also love the hanging roses & a nice picket fence would be beautiful! Make sure the walk to the front door has some curve to it & its made from different sized stones & lined with flowers. And by all means add a garden gate, arch, or arbor with hanging vines.

Came across this today while browsing at HGTV Gardens site. For those whose pocketbook is smaller than their home/garden dreams (like me!), maybe a little hobbit hole (add trees, vines, ferns), below. The blurb says suitable for sleepovers, tho' maybe just little kids:
"Wooden Wonders’ hobbit holes turn backyards into whimsical wonderlands. The brand-new playhouse version Woodshire, produced in Unity, Maine, is an enclosed space ideal for summer sleepovers and imagination-filled play dates, from $2,390 at www.wooden-wonders.com

These uses of hammered metal in the home are fantastic. I would love to see how one of our woven coil shower curtains looks next to the hammered nickel bathroom sink.

I don't, but if you go to this link you can type in your zip code to find the closets supplier, who can then give you a price: http://products.daltile.com/series.cfm?series=79&item=1264&c=9
