My dream home is very large. It has a huge front porch and is a darker color with white columns (as shown). I love homes that have stone on the wall and big windows. I especially love a front porch with a lot of grass and flowers.
DIY - Homemade Gabion wall ie rocks encased in wire baskets and used as a retaining wall - creates a dramatic feature in a garden. No directions on link. Nice someone figured out how to landscape with river rock. I swear they grow!
