About the Great Room:

With ceiling height extended one foot and double glass doors installed to open out to a gracious Southern-style front porch, the great room offers the ideal spot to gather, enjoy views and cozy up by the inviting fire, which discreetly stows a flat-screen TV. "When I think about this year's living room I keep going back to 'cozy coastal cool, '" says House Crashers show host Josh Temple. "It's a great place to hang with family any time of year and enjoy the surroundings."
