Get Out of the House: Create the Perfect Outdoor Space for Your Climate

Solutions to create an outdoor room for wherever you live.

Eddie and Faye Cazayoux love to eat meals on their porch. In the evenings, they sit in the willow chairs-an indigenous craft product-and watch the sun set over their pond. Three separate furniture groupings allow them-and their dog, Annie-to migrate for the best combination of sun, shade, breeze, and vista. Annie lounges under the porch in the heat of the summer, on her pad on the southeast side close to the wall during the winter, and on the willow furniture on the southwest side the rest of the year.
