My house has a number of steps to the front door and the side doors. It has steep, narrow stairs to the second and third floors --- no room for a stair lift. We do have big halls, meaning I could put an elevator in, but I'd still have to deal with the fact that my house is on a hill and getting to a door from the driveway involves stairs or a steep grade change. It's a historic house with old trees and stone retaining walls on a well-planned lot. Getting from street to door without stairs would require some extensive tree cutting, re-doing of stone retaining walls, and changing the classic proportions of the lovely porch. Not a simple matter.

I love my house, but I would recommend people think about mobility issues when they look at houses. Many of my elderly relatives have never seen the second floor of my house.

Two things I wish we had noticed when we bought our current house are the noise in the backyard from the highway and the noise from the Air/Heat system. We can't comfortably sit on our deck without the constant noise from highway. The noise is nonstop unless the highway is closed due to ice. That's the only time it's quiet.

Also, turn on the Air or Heat (depending on the season) to see how loud it is. We almost have to turn up the TV to hear it when the air comes on. We will be doing this with the next house we buy. Now to get this one ready to sell.

Can anyone give some tips on For Sale by Owner process? We've never sold a house without a Realtor but we have a buyer already, we just need to know how to proceed??

I remember when the Montreal basement apartment with the exposed brick was featured. I still think it is adorable and so clever of the owner as well.

Objects of Desire: Modern Fireplaces Play Many Roles

Firebugs? See my previous posts on other similar articles if you think that there is ANY heating source outside of solar that isn't actually FAR WORSE than fire- especially since woodstoves have come such a long way. Where do you think all of that electric, natural gas and oil come from? Let me guess: you live in one of the areas that IMPORTS such power, right? Hmmm.....I can tell you where you should take your next educational "vacation." Until I can afford solar panels, I'll burn wood that I cut down from overgrown trees (required thinning or dead wood) in my own area in my eco-certified woodstove (nothing else is allowed in most areas anymore), thank you very much. And it will contribute to asthma far less than the other heating sources will. Coal, anyone?
And these were all very lovely examples of fire focal points- thanks so much! I don't believe most folks really use open fireplaces more than they just like to look at them.

Wow, Things change out there fast.........I know where this house is, I used to pass it on my way to Smoke Tree Shopping Center, Ralphs. I do hope this is a second home for these guys, It will be lovely to be there from Oct-April. We lived there year round, and had Solar Panels.......but still it was like Summer would never end and 110F is normal in August, it just is not the place to be, nor do I think it was built that way back in the 50-60's. But I must say what a almost perfect reno for Palm Springs........Trina Turk Pillows, on the Sofa, I have them too, but moved back East.........Can't afford 2 homes. Lucky guy's enjoy it while you can.

Lets face it..you live in the space..you need to be comfortable. Get a recliner and enjoy it. To hell with the toffs who have to have everything look like next years design.....but try to find a ice one. Personally I am fidgety and like to swivel and recline.

We have two Stressless Space reclining sofas - one high backed and one low-backed. They are terrific. We opted for blue leather which looks great. Same the rest of the room doesn't look as good as the sofas!

Strides? Never heard that one. Ever.

I like 'the southern necessity.' It might have a very different connotation in different parts of the US, though. A more political one.

I live on Galveston Island, TX, so humidity is a problem to be controlled in every room 10 months out of the year. We don't have walk-in closets (just couldn't fit them in) but we have a large closet (with doors) in the MB bathroom, and another in our master bedroom, as well as in each of the other bedrooms. Given that the air-conditioning functions throughout the house, humidity in all the closets is NOT a problem, and trust me, our toilet does not throw out droplets of anything when flushed (and is several feet away from the closet). We've lived here 14 years and have never had mildew or dampness in any of our closets. Surprisingly, even after Hurricane Ike, when we were without electricity for 2 weeks, the closets were fine. If you have had moisture issues, perhaps your AC is insufficient (assuming you have it). If you live in an area where you don't use AC during the year, then that may cause the problems some posters here have remarked upon. Having said all that, I do want to have a re-design of the closet in the MB -- it was designed in the 70s and is long, not very deep, and I have to reach around the door frame about 20 inches to get to the far ends. I'm hoping a good closet designer will cope up with a much more effective use of space; I'll post photos when I get that done since I bet many readers here have a similar "old fashioned" closet.

Great ideas, I loved it very much. Those who would get the opportunity to live in such picturesque settings would be very lucky. The outdoor space with the wood fences is a place where you can spend your day and forget all your worries- a peaceful retreat away from all the stress.

for Ptowncook, I read all the time that you should rotate large collections in and out of displays. Then you really look at them when they are out, but don't get overwhelmed by clutter. I'm curious if anyone really does it and if it really works. Although I don't have many antiques or big collections, I wonder how people display them well.

Thanks for the article! I always loved laying around reading in the hammock when I was a kid. We had two trees with hooks in them that we hung a traditional hammock from. Unfortunately, after a hurricane knocked over one of the "anchor trees," I kind of let go of the idea of getting my own hammock. I loved getting to see all of the different styles/ways to hang/etc. in this article!

10 Smart Ideas for Your Laundry Room Remodel

I just wanted to second an earlier comment on the front loader odor problem. I keep two old dishtowels in the laundry room, one folded on top of the machine, the other on the door of the machine, so that it cannot be shut tightly. When I wash a load of clothes, I toss the towel in with them. It goes into the dryer when the clothes are done. I take the other dish towel and wipe the wet door and the gasket down, and then hang the slightly damp towel over the door to keep it open. When the clothes come out of the dryer, the dry towel gets folded and goes back on top of the washer. No odor, no slime, no problem. I also do a load of white clothes with bleach every week, which I suspect doesn't hurt either.
I am going to be "rehabbing" our laundry room in the near future, so I love all the great ideas on how to improve things.
