When they moved into their new Portland home, thespians Richard Rolfe and Stephen Rutledge put their skills to work on the interior and exterior. One project was to create an outdoor living space sheltered by a large old tree in the back yard...

The "room" was defined with old shutters and other salvaged materials from The ReBuilding Center. This backyard getaway is now a favorite for cocktail parties and relaxing under the giant (though purely decorative) chandelier.
