By now, your holiday decorations have been packed away in the attic, garage or basement for another year. Was one of your resolutions to never again have to search through 10 red-and-green plastic storage bins for that "Our First Christmas" ornament?

Q: We are finally in a position to add the master bedroom-bath extension we've been wanting, but we find ourselves overwhelmed by the options. Our home is fairly contemporary. I say "fairly" because we have a mix of antiques and modern furniture; we have a lot of different materials throughout the house. For example, the main room floor is slate, the kitchen is hardwood and the rest has been carpeted in sisal with area rugs. ... [full story]

Q: One side of our great room is all windows. It's one reason we bought this house, but after living here for nearly a year, we find that the winter sun makes afternoons almost unbearable from the glare. Strange, because we didn't have this trouble last summer and fall. I hate the idea of curtains - the view is over the back garden and we love looking out - that is, when we don't have ...

When heavy rains flooded the East Branch of Nimishillen Creek in July 2003, the Werner family of Louisville, Ohio, ended up with 3 feet of sewage water in their basement. It was the first time the family ever saw the basement flood. Water from a nearby creek came within 5 feet of the house. The family figured the rare flood caused their basement problems. But last summer, a night of heavy rains backed up sewer ... [full story]

Rocking on a porch swing may sound old-fashioned, but the Double Lounger from Outback Chair Co. is new-fashioned.
