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.

Feeling closer to a LOT

The outdoor storage has a door, now...looks good! I'm glad Mark did it his way instead of mine, this looks a LOT better. Very handsome. May keep a little grill, charcoal, or folding chairs in there, who knows? (Knowing my neighborhood, nothing of real value...and to lock, or not to lock?)

The fractured window works just as I hoped it would--this is the view from the door. (J. says it looks too much like the druggies whose house it came from...)

And now we have the French doors and the small door hung!

The window's going to have to be moved because Mark didn't realize I meant for it to be opened; the stained glass window fits it exactly as it is, with no frame, etc. We'll have to make the opening larger, and move it to the left a bit, closer to the door, and since we have to move it anyway, it'll come down, slightly. It's a win-win, really...

I'm liking the big double doors natural wood, though--we'd planned to paint them white like the rest of the trim, but I guess we can do that later if we want...


  1. It is really, really pretty Kate!! It must be exciting seeing your vision coming to fruition!

  2. OMGosh!! It is really looking good! Almost time to decorate. Are you having anything built in inside--like a counter or shelves? Or will everything be freestanding? I bet you can hardly wait! Lock or not lock--I'd probably lock since you'll lock the shed anyways. :)

  3. It will be so cheerful and refreshing in there, Kate, when the windows and French Doors open. It is already charming. Fresh wood has a wonderful smell, too.

  4. It is coming along! Rita, we'll probably put shelves in on that big blank south wall, but no biggie, we can do that ourselves. Everything else is freestanding.

    And OH YES, I love that smell!

  5. Beautiful. I'm sooooo envious!

  6. It's pretty do-able, Paul--if you don't mind driving a 15 year old car (I don't!) and buying some of my clothes secondhand or from the dollar store! :-P
