This is a pretty book, but it’s much more about decorating than construction or design. It’s a rich person that must own most of these structures and backgrounds.

There are some clever details. A staghorn fern mounted above a doorway, a treehouse ladder with raw trunk sides and pressure-treated treads angled into the sides, a storage shelving with witty containers and labeling, marble top on a treadle machine base for the deck, pierced heavy metal piece used for ventilation (pg 122), William Baffin climbing rose!!! A stone mantel set up on the outside of a building holding ceramic and stone ornaments and with an old mirror propped up. Birdhouses mounted on tall posts throughout the grounds. Slab wood siding. Fern sandwiched between two clear glass plates. Moss and mushrooms in simple trays for centerpiece. Mirror pieces on exterior walls with exterior wood trimming painted.

The book cover has a handsome painted wood embossed pattern. ( )
