Dogs are people, too, which is why your dog should probably get his or her own little haven underneath the stairs. Make space for two dishwashers instead of one. You can load one while the other washes. If you’re doing a HUGE remodel, ask your contractor about tacking on a tree or guest house. This add-on might cost less than you think. Turn your shabby garden shed into a charming artist’s shed. With big windows for lots of light and visual inspiration. Install an in-wall pest control system. Insane in le bain.
