Set the scene for great outdoor parties or just dinner for two
Thomas J. Story
A sunken dining area on Julie Higgs and Dave Stickler's Oregon houseboat is warm weather central. The table is a salvaged glass door atop ceramic planters.
The lushly planted deck often serves as settings for outdoor feasts replete with pitchers of Tahitian rum cocktails and platters of prawns. It all has the feel of a permanent vacation.
