"Life has changed a lot since then," David said yesterday at the 33rd Pennsylvania Home Show in the state Farm Show Complex. "Now people want outdoor kitchens, hot tubs, pools, ponds and landscaping. People are spending more time at home and want a place to really relax."
As snow and freezing rain coated midstate roads, a summerlike atmosphere dominated the outdoor-living displays of the Home Show, which runs through Sunday. Exhibitors showed visitors how to turn backyards into casual but beautiful attractions and transform decks into entertainment areas that rival resorts.
