I could not agree more with your editorial regarding the minor privilege tax ( "Minor privilege, major disincentive," Aug. 13). While the article was business focused, this absurd tax also hits the residential property owners in the city. A couple of months after purchasing a home in Baltimore City in 2012, I received a bill for a minor privilege tax. Being new to the city, I had no idea what this tax was. After a couple of phone calls I found out that I will be charged a $193.25 yearly fee for having a second floor bay window on my house and for a 5-inch piece of conduit that runs under the sidewalk in front of my house.

My child's room has a three-sided bay window that forms a potentially cozy nook. I'd like to build a seat that would follow the window's contours. How should I design this addition?First, you're right that a snug nook can be created -- for adults and children alike -- by constructing a seat beneath a bay window or, for that matter, any sort of deep-set window. I'd advise you to install a bench-type seat, perhaps like the one shown in the photo, because it can also be used for storage.I always prefer such seating to look as if it had been built right into the recess rather than having been wedged in as an afterthought.

A contemporary, villa-style home made of brick and cedar siding, found at 4205 Sweet Air Road in Baldwin, is for sale for $675,000. Resting on nearly 1.5 acres, the property is a golfer's dream with a professionally designed five-hole putting green that backs up to a meadow and pond. Brick entry posts with lanterns sit at the foot of the recently repaved driveway, while curved brick steps lead to the home's impressive entrance. "This is a well-built house, close to walking paths and shopping," said Lynn Plack, listing agent with the Hubble Bisbee Group of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

Where there's a will, there's a way — especially if it means securing the house of your dreams. Zach and Mary Kuhn always wanted a home on the water. They were living in upstate New York when they made the decision to move south. After considering Maryland, North Carolina and South Carolina, Zach Kuhn, 28, was offered a job as a cost estimator for ISEC Inc., a specialty construction company based near Columbia. "Zach found our dream home while doing an online search, and we had to act fast," Mary Kuhn, 28, recalled.

Q: My dining room features a pair of glassed French doors leading to a terrace. The space also contains a large bay window. What kind of treatment should I use for these openings? Privacy is a consideration, and I want to eliminate the annoying daytime glare.A: As your question implies, you're among the majority that thinks all the glass areas in a room need to be treated in the same manner. In fact, however, identical coverings are usually not the best solution for a combination of windows and doors of varying size and style.

When designers sign on to transform a house into a "show house," they aren't working with a blank slate. It's more likely they are working with a slate that has issues and challenges and charming quirks. A slate that needs some TLC. Homeowners hunting for the right wall color or trying to cover up unsightly elements in a room can probably relate. So we took a tour of this year's Baltimore Symphony Associates' Decorators' Show House in Pikesville, which opens to the public Saturday, to search out designer secrets that homeowners can use on their own slates.

A visit to Paul McCartney's house wasn't exactly what you'd expect. Then again, neither was I. A young Baltimore reporter and Beatles nut, in London to research a few feature stories, I was standing in the kitchen of the ultimate singer / songwriter, in a telephone company jacket, holding the back end of a ladder, and in a tizzy. It's a long story ... one untold until now. In the late summer of 1975, songwriter and producer Tony Macaulay agreed to an interview at his home in St. Johns Wood, a comfortable upper-middle-class suburb of London.

Q: Enclosed is a floor plan of our house, which is located on the beach in California. The dining room has a floor-to-ceiling bay window that provides a great view of the ocean. As you can see, however, the dining room has a lot of wasted space. How do you suggest I furnish this room?A: A floor plan of the room and its location in the house certainly helps me make suggestions. But there are other equally important pieces of information that I don't have available. Most significantly, I need to know how this room can best serve the user -- you.No design can be truly successful unless it meets the needs of those who have to live with it. But perhaps I'll be safe in assuming that at least a portion of your leisure time is spent watching the sun set over the Pacific.
