Outdoor living is a year-round topic on Hometalk. Hometalk members are busy planning and maintaining outdoor living spaces from the heat of summer to the cold of winter. Some folks are professionals who post gorgeous pictures of the outdoor living dreamscapes they've built. Other folks are DIYers who are revamping their outdoor living areas, building outdoor furniture, or planning an outdoor living room for the first time.

I purchased a large 12'X16' utility shed to fix the inside up as an office. The interior is very cute and welcoming, but the outside is an eyesore in my backyard. We've thought of
building a porch on it and painting the front door a pretty color, but? The porch idea would be the width of the building 12' and 4' out. I thought of columns but that is as far as I have gotten. Help please from you wonderful creative people. I will try and get a picture in a day or two.
My hubby and I would LOVE to have a deck out back but just can't afford it. We currently have wood chips in a 10'x20' area for our grill and lounge chairs. Any ideas as to what we could do to improve that?
I live in TN, the back yard has a 30round above ground pool with decking on one side. It has a large concrete patio area that wraps around to the side of house. 2 sides have a small
privacy fence, 2 sides have chain link fencing. I just bought the house and have no idea what to do with this area. I has no covering, so it gets direct sun light. The neighbors yard is an eyesore, and I will have no privacy, that's one of the sides with the chainlink fence the otherside that's chain link, looks out to the street. NO privacy. Not sure if I should try planting something to provide privacy, or get a privacy fence put up. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
I have a fairly large pile of bricks salvaged from an old unused chimney that we took down. I want to design a brick surround into which we could put a grill (not a grill top, but a grill
so that I can roll it out and replace it). I also have a piece of countertop left over from my kitchen re-model that is about 22" X 32" (it would need to be trimmed straight to that size). I also have 12 glass blocks (4"X8"X4") that I'd like to incorporate into the design. Does anyone have any ideas or can point me to a good website? Thanks
