In case you were wondering...

This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

2 steps forward...

...and one back, isn't that how it goes? Mark's not coming today--he had workmen coming to HIS house, and he had to wait for them. And now it's hot and muggy, soooo...tomorrow.

Impatient soul that I am, I'm anxious to get to the part I can do, painting and tweaking--and to have my life back, actually. I know, it's only really been a little over a week. What can I say?! I'm a charter member of the Short Attention Span Theatre...

But we HAVE made a lot of progress, so I'll just hush now, OK?

Day before yesterday...inside, looking north...
(Can't do that now, because most of the south wall is mostly up!)

More walls (the south one's almost finished), and the decking is done...

My sweetie Joseph helps Mark hold up a siding panel to nail it into's rough-sawn, tongue-and-groove plywoodish paneling, same as my 30 year old shed.

So yeah, we're getting there. Feels glacially slow, but that's just because I have so much else to do, and would like to be USING the place!


  1. Well, Kate, I'd be just like you if it were MY shed, but since I am only watching, it seems to me that it is getting along. However...I DO understand that you NEED to be in there NOW if not sooner-- So fingers crossed that it will happen like that.

  2. Thanks, Annie! I know it's going fast, really--

  3. Patience! Patience! ;)
    It is beautiful to see unfolding.
    Always, Rita
