Garden House by David Guerra Email David Guerra is the Brazilian architect that redesigned the Garden House, a 1980′s house located in Brazil. This amazing house was constructed considering some important aspects like the interior/exterior integration which was planned to be bigger. This was possible using the garden day by day and it not only helped at the integration but also at the lighting of the rooms that used to be dark. To be suitable for the new owners the house was modernized adding new spaces that can be used in different ways. There was used a mix of styles including classics, ethnics, contemporaries and Brazilian references.
marble magnets I finally gave in and made marble magnets. Not surprisingly they are quite fun, smooshing the glue out to make a perfect little magnified image is very satisfying.

Small Footprint, Big Yield: Create an Easy Micro Organic Urban Garden Today! | Urban Gardens | Unlimited Thinking For Limited Spaces April 28, 2009 by Robin Plaskoff Horton There are two things urban gardeners are short on: space and time.
