High ceilings make modestly sized rooms look larger and more appealing. However, the scale and lack of dimension of such rooms make built-in storage systems very difficult to place without overwhelming the space.For this family room, interior designer and space planner Eileen Brown came up with a solution for storage in the form of a simple, fireplace-framing storage system built by Village Woodworks of Finksburg. While one side of the cabinetry houses an entertainment system, the other stores liquor and linens, and includes lighted display shelves.

It has not been an especially good year for the 70-horsepower outboard that has occupied the transom of the 16-foot boat that is set under a tarp at the end of the driveway.The starter went bad and was rebuilt. The in-line fuel bulb developed a minuscule leak and was replaced. The spark plugs, FTC seems, have been replaced more often than in past years. But, then, it has been in saltwater and freshwater use for 10 years and one has to expect that parts will go bad.All in all, 10 years is not a bad lifetime for a chunk of milled aluminum -- and with basic storage preparation, I fully expect that next spring, with new fuel in the tank and a fresh charge on the battery, the three-cylinder Mercury again will rumble to life and run reliably through another season.
