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.

Rain, again...

So yeah. It appears it would be a LOT better to have the weatherstripping on the outside of the door instead of the inside. Ya think? More pools and goes right under the door and onto the floor.

The spar varnish really protects the wood I got it onto, though, look at how the moisture beaded up! (It's still tacky after 24+ hours, but hopefully it will decide to dry hard and I can do another coat...)


  1. I think there is some weather stripping that goes under the door. Please send the rain our way. We could really use it. Here we are in the Arizona Monsoon season and not a drop of rain!

  2. Yep, I think you're right...something needs to seal that bottom edge. I saw something in the hardware store the other day that looks like it might do the job, actually...

    We've had lovely rains this year, really...just not all that convenient at the moment!

  3. Caulk, ask the hardware store person for the right one, you need to seal it all up with the right caulk product..

  4. Yes, we're trying to find some brown to seal that faux wood bit to the aluminum sill...unfortunately the problem seems to be the bottom of the door itself, and the way it fits against the sill. There's a gap, and caulk wouldn't help, there...
