offers us a look back at the beginning, middle and end of a terrific Brooklyn backyard remodel including some before and after pictures that really highlight the dramatic difference that landscaping and gardening can make. The property in question is an 1890's frame house in Greenwood Heights. There's a play-by-play narration to go with the pic's as well.

If you're looking to go the next level in terms of home heating and cooling comfort, you could do a lot worse than check out Trane's new ComfortLink II Residential Communicating System. Not only to all of your HVAC components "talk" to each other, but you have full access via telephone to see what's happening while you're not at home. This promotes not only complete comfort in terms of the temperature of your home, it also increases energy efficiency. Charles & Hudson has the scoop directly from the manufacturer.
