Name: Jason C.
Location: Chicago, Illinois
Size: 72 square feet
Your Favorite Thing About Your Outdoor Space: The view of the rest of our building. The exterior is just stunning.
Biggest Design Challenge With This Space: Trying to do too many things at once. We wanted a garden, a dining space, a place to relax, a place to entertain, a place to grill out... all in 72 square feet. But I think we struck a nice balance.
Tips for Creating a Great Small Outdoor Space: Never use an entire matching outdoor furniture set. Change it up a bit.
Thanks, Jason, and good luck!
