Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!
We're hunkering down in New England right now for what forecasters are saying will be the biggest snowstorm we've seen in years. Quite timely, seeing as we just passed the 35th anniversary (Feb. 6) of the infamous Blizzard of '78. I've lived here my whole life, so I've learned to not only embrace, but love, winter!

Wouldn't it be fun to go out and play with this beautiful toboggan made of steam-bent ash wood? (For the price, you might as well also use it as a chair in your living room when it is off-duty!) This one is the "Peak Snow Sled", made by Sirch in the Alpine foothills of southern Germany. Check out their other sled versions and furniture as well. Really beautiful stuff.

 his daily finds column.)

About Us

Christopher Scott and Jodi Vautrin are the husband and wife team behind Ourhaus, where they chronicle their adventures in home improvement, decorating and travel. After purchasing a unique loft space just a few miles north of Boston, they began photographing and writing about their projects and it blossomed into a creative outlet and platform.

When they’re not home improving, Jodi spends her days as a freelance creative director & designer with a focus on user interface and interactive design, and is an entrepreneur at heart. She serves on the board of AIGA Boston as Vice President of Emerging Ideas & Events.

In his professional life, Christopher is the Technology Director for a multi-service ad agency based in Harvard Square. In his private life, he enjoys tinkering in all its forms, whether it's rebuilding the Ourhaus home network (again), fooling himself into thinking he knows how to fix home appliances, or trying to unravel the mysteries of the guitar. He also flies planes, performs open heart surgery and sings at bar mitzvahs (though not all at the same time).

They share their “haus” with their adorable, highly food-motivated chocolate lab, Lucy.
