It's summertime, and the livin' is easy ... or at least a lot easier now that Vermonters have nearly beat back the coronavirus, masks are off and hugging is OK again. Also, sunshine. Some of us are finally scheduling trips to visit long-unseen relatives or vacation in some exotic locale. But often the best place to be in the summer is our own backyards. Hence the theme of this issue, which considers these sanctuaries from a variety of angles. Read on for a rhapsodic paean to the "Outdoor House" and grilling tips from a master chef. Learn how an avid gardener turned her backyard blossoms into a business, and how a couple of Burlington residents have navigated the new regs on ADUs — that is, accessory dwelling units. Check out some fine and funky chicken coops, and enjoy the voyeuristic discovery of "hidden" homes in, yes, other people's backyards.
