Discussing the Zen Garden Design

Project: Craftsman Bungalow, Episode 13, Part 2

With a comfortable master suite, and French doors opening onto the ample new porch addition-- complete with barbecue, Zen garden, and steps down to the green slate swimming pool-- it's truly a dream home for the century's end, with all the charm and craftsmanship of its beginning.
