The railing used to be a futon frame, and yes, those are croquet balls!
A giant lantern lights the way. That's a tree we cut down and used throughout the house.

I will greet you when you arrive, show you where to park, and give you the Official Tour of The Recycled House if you're interested. I live in the other house on the property. We probably won't see each other during your stay (unless we bump into each like neighbors) but I'm readily available if you need something.
