I'm completely in love with Patrick Dempsey and his wife Jillians home in Malibu. I called John while at the library and in a hushed tone and said, "I found exactly what we've been talking about in the new Architectural Digest".
Our backyard has three levels, each with quiet a bit of space, but only two of those levels are flat, so we're carving into the hillside of the second to flatten it out to gain a lot of useable land. In this new spot we are going to make a eating/fireplace, area, like this one
Some fireplace ideas
I think wayyy to much about home design, and drive aimlessly to check out a few construction sites,
monitoring looking at the progress. I'll admit I've almost caused a few wrecks, pulling over for a open house here and there:)) Off to the rock yard hoping to get some pavers ordered today. Love you, Shirley
