Lisa's Adult and Kid Backyard Hangout

Small, Cool Outdoors Entry #19

Name: Lisa D.
Location: Andover, Massachusetts
Size: 228 square feet

Your Favorite Thing About Your Outdoor Space: First and foremost, we love the integrated sandbox! The kids love it too. We also love how the light filters through the shadowbox style fence in the late afternoon. It is cozy and intimate.

Biggest Design Challenge With This Space: Cutting the deck around the trees. Making the deck look like it's 'floating.' Deciding what kind of fence to build. We built it from scratch!

Tips for Creating a Great Small Outdoor Space: Make it intimate and cozy. Use natural light to your advantage. Simple accessories such as a couple of pillows and table top decorations make a huge difference!

Thanks, Lisa, and good luck!
