Open Cabana instead of Poolhouse

I really like this idea- doing the kitchen in front of the bathroom with the bbq on the very edge and then the sitting area next to it (also love the siding/ship lap...

Outdoor kitchen bar on side of cabana- I like that it's narrow and takes up little space width-wise; bbq on side...

Bar on side...

Bar on one side; 2 tvs on one side; sitting area in middle (no dining area); bathroom in back...

TV layout?

Sides if we do an open cabana...

Pillars for existing CA room...

Border Landscape Ideas

I want the walls completely covered by trees.  I like these close set trees and small round bushes:

Love the tall trees:

E's house has a pretty layered look:

Trees along perimeter:

Planters for around pool and/or against wall next to master bedroom doors:

Backyard Reno Ideas: POOL

LOVE this.

White brick wall backing:

Love the back wall; pretty stone- but more grays, no oranges; like the balls on the pillars:

Very pretty.  Love the stone, the sharp edges of the pool/spa; the concrete spa coping; the pots with boxwoods on the edge:

Exactly how I want the "baja step" and steps- small baja step:

Backyard Reno Ideas: FIRE PIT


Love this fire pit, the stone used is nice; like the decking as well:

Perfect fire pit- so nice looking; love the stone, pretty built-in seats (if we do built-in):

Love the wall, how it encloses the fire pit area:

Love the fire pit and the balls inside the fire pit; love the cozy feel of all the pillows:

Backyard Reno Ideas: OUTDOOR KITCHEN

Outdoor kitchen under CA room, next to dining area:

Backyard Reno Ideas: GENERAL


Love the elevation, elevated spa, stairs up to elevated area for fire pit; love the back brick wall:

Love the general look; the elevations; the decking:

Outdoor shower:

New Big Girl Room

I don't recall if I ever posted photos of Ella's room, but I've already changed it!  Everett is about ready for his big boy room so I wanted him to have Ella's navy blue walls for his upcoming Nautical room, and I wanted his all white paneled room for Ella so I switched them.

I was never happy with how Ella's original room turned out because I tried to work with things we had from the old house, but I love her new room!  I keep forgetting to take photos with my good camera so here are some iPhone photos until I get a chance to take good photos...
