DIY Geodesic Garden Dome Kit. Hey, kid, go find me some sticks! Sixty-five of them to be exact. Hubs' DIY Garden Dome Kit is a box of "Hubs" and hardware you can use to create and snap together frame pieces to build sturdy geodesic structures. Use them to cover your garden, give your kids (or your dog) an outer spacey fort, make a festival tent, or design your own planetarium.

The Hubs configurations and possibilities are limited only by your imagination, and the number of splinters you're willing to sustain during construction. For stick selection, Hubs recommends 2 different lengths of roofing batten, hardwood dowels, oiled oak, broom handles, or whatever you come up with that measures about 1-1/4" wide.

Precise length recommendations are determined according to the diameter structure you want to build, but you'll need 30 short and 35 long ones. Sticks connect into a 5-way or 6-way Hub using the kit's included screws and ball connector hardware. A Backyard Pavilion and Pool for the Perfect Escape. For a family of four in King City, Ontario, Canada, Amantea Architects designed the Clearview Pavilion within a bare backyard surrounded by a line of Norway Spruce trees. The goal was to save the trees while incorporating privacy, along with a design that included a swimming pool, pool house, outdoor kitchen, lounge, and play area. The pool house was built underneath the canopies of the trees, following the same line, to reduce the view of the house behind the property.

The wooden structure with screens of Douglas Fir lets natural light through while offering privacy. A large white oak table was custom designed to sit underneath a steel and wood trellis. Built-in planters run alongside the table, as well as a fire pit. The partially covered shower was built around an existing tree bringing in an element of nature while rinsing off from the pool.

Designer Alain Gilles has created an indoor picnic table that performs triple duty – it’s a workspace, a gathering spot, and a place to eat.

Designed for BuzziSpace, the BuzziPicNic tables are a one-stop shop for businesses with flexible work environments. The picnic table conjures up happy and playful memories for most, so bringing them into the office might be a great way to keep co-workers happy and friendly as they gather around the informal table. Besides coming in various rectangular and round sizes, BuzziPicNic comes in a split level version that offers a higher surface on one size and a lower tabletop on the other, so different types of interaction can be carried on at once.

On the standard height side, benches work perfectly, while on the other, higher side, you’d add stools. The rectangular tables can be laid out next to each other to create a super long table for co-working office spaces. Hanging Egg Chair. 51 Budget Backyard DIYs That Are Borderline Genius.

Landscape Design Ideas: Modern Garden Water Features. Gardening is a commitment. All those plants to water, flowers to deadhead, and maybe even vegetables to pluck and eat.

(Okay, maybe that part isn’t such a hardship.) While some people (Earth Mothers, Brooklyn hipsters, retirees) revel in the dirt, others (like me!) Don’t have the time, inclination, or green thumb to maintain much of an outdoor wonderland. Adding a water feature is one way to make an outdoor space special, without any digging. Yeah, it’s likely kinda costly to get up and running, but at least you don’t have to worry about it dying.

I found my new Summer project. Congo Squares Bench: A Seat and Chess Board in One. Besides having a really fun name (it kinda makes me think of Conga), the Congo Squares bench, by Atelier Astúa, is a piece of furniture and a game in one!

On the surface, the bench merely looks like a chess board without the pieces. However, there’s a simple mechanism that allows the chess pieces to pop up when you’re ready to play. When you’re done playing, the users can decide themselves how to compose the seating area. They can either put one color on each side of the chess board or mix both colors, which are the different types of wood. So fun! It's cold outside.
