My partner, Rob, just built the most beautiful little piece of paradise on Quadra Island which was celebrated this weekend with a deck warming party. Our friend, Karmin, calls it GLAMPING because we have almost every luxury with a covered deck, running (rain captured) water, granite counter tops and even a flushing toilet - it is glamorous outdoor living. Thank you to all who came to celebrate! I have always believed that the first party sets the tone of the home (or in this case the deck) and there is no doubt that the bar has been raised very high with the beautiful energy that everyone brought to the evening. Rob’s good friend, Jim, worked tirelessly to create the most gorgeous old cedar tables (art pieces) which could put this place over the Glamping category and right into luxury living. If you have a piece of land somewhere in the world that is not being used, you may consider these small improvements to create a little paradise without a huge expenditure!
