- GABRIELLE COUGHENOUR
In this spring issue of Nest, we’re thinking about more than just spring cleaning. Now that the snow is melting and we can finally see the ground, it’s Vermont's busiest season of the year for home buying and selling. If you’re in the market for new digs in Burlington, read “’Hood, Sweet ’Hood,” our handy home buyers' guide to the city — broken down by neighborhood.
Or perhaps you’re looking for someplace a little more rural. In “Village Greens,” we take a look at “agrihoods” — back-to-the-land-style developments offering residents edible landscapes as well as tight-knit communities. Just looking to get back to your garden — or start one indoors? Check out “High Hopes,” our easy DIY tutorial for making your own space-saving vertical garden at home.
No question, spring is the time to get outside. The Vermont Cedar Chair Company makes outdoor lounging extra comfy with its uniquely handcrafted outdoor rockers — read about ’em in “Seat Filler.”
Finally, starting this issue, we're taking home tours! Feast your eyes on “Lofty Ambitions,” where we walk you through an innovative loft-style home above a Rochester art gallery. Know a space we should feature next? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
