Blogging Cottage Living... Backyard Retreat

Okay, here in the city we don't have many back yards or backyard retreats. We still appreciate this garage renovation shown in Cottage Living, though. Sandi Cook and her husband, John Greci had a run-down old one-car-garage shed building at the back of her lot that became, do you believe it, the beautiful retreat pictured up top.

Their architect, Katie Hutchison, made sure the space was open with plenty of daylight and fresh air by installing large double-hung windows and operable shutters. We love the relaxed atmosphere of this diamond-in-the-rough.
