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.

One step closer...

Soooo...Electrician # 2 came yesterday with Mark, looked over the job, saw what we wanted, made recommendations, and got an electrical permit from the city yesterday.


Here's Joseph discussing our needs with him...

And here's my sweetie digging the pilot hole by hand this morning, looking for the buried phone cable while it was still almost bearable out there! (Typical Midwestern Summer weather--that is to say, a sauna...)

Mark will get a trencher for the rest of the line, but we hoped to fine-tune it so the phone cord didn't get cut. (That's also our Internet connection, of course!)


We'll snake the electric wire under it...

Meanwhile, J. ran an extension cord out to the shed so we can run the fan on the waterlogged board--and when it's NOT aimed at the board, it's aimed at me, so I can breathe...

Breathing good...


  1. I dug the phone cord out a little more this morning so there will hopefully be sufficient clearance to help Mark avoid it.

  2. Thanks, babe! Hopefully that will be today...

  3. Ah yes, breathing! That is a good thing. We are at 108 degrees today! That is supposed to be what Phoenix or Bullhead City get to, not us! I find it hard to breathe and am staying in the air conditioning as much as possible (my husband sets it so it hovers around 82 degrees in the house which I would like cooler). You've got the permit and Joseph has found the phone line so it won't be cut. You are getting there! Can you see the light yet? Way down at the end of the tunnel?

  4. Omigosh...I don't care if it IS a dry heat, that's TOO HOT.

    Yes, I can indeed see the light, but I think it's still a candle and not a light bulb. SOOOoooon, though!
