After a cancellation for the first time in nearly half a century, a short northern tour of homes and gardens will return next Sunday.
With Kovid’s precautions, the tour left the room with a focus on in-house bonuses.
“We felt we had to cancel last year,” said Masa Mona, who is leading the tour with Gail Rosen. But this year we decided to focus outside the home on the safety of clients and homes.
From Goda Park to the caretaker’s hut, the tour will show eight yards, all of which will include a short walk from the park, the Pizzuti Collection at the Columbus Art Museum – the grounds and the exploration gallery. Major ones include Buttles Avenue and the corner of Park Avenue, Coco Place, a lush landscaped home and a swimming pool courtyard.
Respect for the outdoors may be the only thing during these epidemics. In short, for many homeowners in the north and elsewhere, the yard, porch, porch, and veranda have provided sanctuary and socialization over the past 17 months.
“I spent more time on the campus than ever before,” said Hally Boeing, a short-term tour of the backyard. “This backyard really saved me. It allowed me to keep those relationships. … That community spirit kept me going.”
Boeingin’s compound served as a private retreat as well as a meeting place for neighbors and occasionally an office for staff at her consulting firm Storyforge.
It is no coincidence that she works outside the home. That idea came true when she worked on the campus five years ago.
Working with Ketron Custom Developers in Granville, She renovated her house 14 years ago, and Boening went out to create outdoor spaces: kitchen, living room and dining room, with a comfortable fireplace with a fireplace and even a bakery.
With the exception of the large black almond tree in the backyard, Boening was working on an empty board of approximately 30 to 55 feet[30 to 55 m].
“There was an old fence around it, and it was just grass,” she said. I called it a football field.
Boeing had some goals in the improvement.
I am a gardener this weekend. I wanted something beautiful that would not take much skill to maintain. I also like to cook, so I wanted a nice kitchen area, and I wanted a place where people could gather around the kitchen. And a place to eat. ”
The result is a series of both flowing and defined areas.
Next to the house is a kitchen, gas grill (“for the days of the week”) and a large green egg grill (“for the weekends”), both part of a long outdoor terrace.
It is close to the kitchen for discussion: two sofas and two chairs around two tables, commercially cantilevered, and a 10 to 14 foot umbrella tucked into the floor. Boeheng joked: “I’m a passerby. “I must have a shadow”
Two steps downstairs is a beautiful fall Te and 10-seater table with a heavy, 13- to 16-foot pergola dining area.
“When I came home during the renovation and saw all that cedar piled up, ‘What did I do?’ I was terrified when I saw all that wood, ”said Boeing.
Visitors enter the “house” through the doorway through the garden and orchards in the backyard. Hidden speakers, external Wi-Fi, multiple outlets and inconspicuous lights flashed across plants and dining and living areas, adding to the space-like effect.
Boeing and Ketron set up a double-sided cedar fence along the site. Behind the courtyard, they added side and false windows to give the facade of the house a facade of a concrete block garage.
Boehning backyard has a lot of indoor functionality, but ultimately outdoors. Boeing wanted to make me feel like she was in a room full of plants, so the place was closed.
On one side of the courtyard there is a raised bed full of weeping cherries hanging from Hydrana. Arborvitaes are on the opposite side. Whistler climbs the pillars of Pergola.
“I like the idea of a big green room,” she said.
