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.

A peek inside the shed...

The doors are trimmed out, now...we used 2-bys for the French doors since we had to enlarge the opening a little. This gives added strength and support. (That's my broom in the corner..)

This is looking in the French doors toward the back wall...all trimmed out and ready to paint.

...we used leftover underlayment meant for under vinyl floors for the walls; it's less temperamental than drywall and better for a shed, I think. It will be painted with leftover warm white paint we got for the rehab project, which will make it even lighter inside. (I'll miss the fresh wood smell, though.)

That's the Coffee Corner at left--just room beyond the French doors for a little stand with coffee on it. We'll put storage and book shelves on this big blank wall...looking for inexpensive brackets, now...

I had hoped to paint over the weekend, but still just wiped out and very achy, so not today, anyway. Still, it's looking good and nice to go out there and sit in the cool of the morning...


  1. Looking great, Kate! Can't believe how fast it's gone up.

  2. Thanks, Krista, it feels agonizingly slow, to me! Waiting for the electrician, dodging the wires sticking out of the walls, wanting to paint...wanting to MOVE IN.

    Still haven't heard from the electrician...sigh.
