Our spring issue launches next week

Inside you'll find everything you need to get in the mood for spring

By |

There’s still snow on the ground, but the next issue of East Coast Living will put you in a spring state of mind. You’ll find DIY tips aplenty, a beautiful home that uses time-honoured traditions to save energy, and the recipe for hosting a casual tea party.

Prep your yard for spring with step-by-step tutorial on building your own rain collector. You’ll need professional help to collect water that’s safe to drink, but your downspout run-off has so many uses. Just using rainwater to flush your toilet could save 10,000 litres of water a year.

On our cover, we feature a beautiful Lockeport, Nova Scotia home. This build blends sleek, modern lines with energy efficient building techniques. My favourite thing about this home is its abundant windows and light wood ceilings that give it an airy feel and draw a clear connection to the landscape outside. In this story, you’ll find plenty of tips you can use in a new build to help you leave smaller ecological footprint.

In our Eating In section, we show you how to host a casual afternoon tea, complete with recipes, tea suggestions and advice from Charles MacPherson (better known as Charles the Butler), the Shadow Lawn Inn in Rothesay, New Brunswick, and Ma Belle’s Cafe in Dartmouth, N.S.
