A teepee in a backyard? Why not?

The owners of this house in Santa Monica, California, have all kinds of fascinating outdoor retreats in their front and backyards, making wise use of all of their space. This fabulous teepee is adult-sized -- actually several could fit inside -- and is relaxing, quiet, fun and takes you back to your childhood, when you made teepees out of chairs and sheets or blankets in the backyard.

With the growing popularity of staycations, why not put up a teepee in your own yard? It's a creative alternative to a camping tent.
