Some design professionals are accommodating pets other than dogs and cats. Spring Creek Design, a design-and-build firm in Honey Brook, Penn., has designed a bunny room and pig barn. “The bunnies were given a corner bedroom with two windows, since they like light,” says Liz Smutko, the companys brand manager. The barn has two indoor stalls, housing one pig in each, and comes with mobile fenced-in areas, so the animals can be rotated through and grass and soil cleaned and repaired as needed she says. Finally, Lynch has seen many cases where chickens are coming home to roost in glamorous coops. “People are finding it a good way to teach their children about nature and show respect for animals,” she says.
Light and fire. Low-voltage, energy-efficient illumination for the outdoors is now easy to install, even without an electrician. It can be placed along paths, in grass, water features, and trees to extend garden use past dusk. Lighting also helps homeowners enjoy their gardens from afar by spotlighting different garden focal points so they can be enjoyed during inclement weather or when residents are otherwise unable to venture out. Real flames and light can flicker safely in gas-fired tiki-style torches or a fire pit to expand a gardens use into evening. Fire offers a mental health benefit since it tends to call people together to sit and linger, which is especially helpful for for those feeling isolated. “Theres something almost tribal about being around a fire together,” says Sachs.
