It used to be that yards were for mowing, and anything outside of the house was just for looking at. But a whole lot of living now happens outdoors, well beyond a home's traditional four walls. Eating, relaxing, entertaining, recreating ... today's families are as likely to be found outside as indoors. That's where Outdoor Living -- The Ultimate Project Guide comes in. If you're going to do a lot of your living outside, you might as well have the items you want, be comfortable, and have everything look great. So here are almost 1,000 photographs (spread over hundreds of pages and dozens and dozens of projects) that will show you how to easily and efficiently make your outdoor living space functional, fun and beautiful.
