Even if you have a small piece of land behind your home-whether it's in the country or the city-you, too, can create your own outdoor room. An outdoor room can be as simple as a barbeque grill and a table and chairs on a patio or as elaborate as an outdoor guest bedroom complete with a teak-framed bed and outdoor fireplace.
