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.

Trench is in!

It took longer than I expected, because of all our trees and a surprising number of big rocks underground! (They'll be fun to use for landscaping or stepping stones, though...)

The trench is mostly deeper than the 18" required, and is ready to be inspected--and for the wire to go in. Then the hookup and THEN it will be much more comfortable to work over there. (Yesterday the heat index was something like 105 by afternoon. Eeep...)

Mark encountered one rather odd pipe that the DigRite guy didn't mark--must be an old one, not attached to anything. It's not our gas line, and our water pipes are out front. Anyway, it didn't break, for which I'm grateful--even if it's old, I'm glad it's intact.

We had hoped to get it dug in time for the building inspector to come by, but it was JUST after five...oh well! Manana...

So now we have a nice deep trench and piles of dirt; getting it covered back up and using mulch on the patch will fix that area nicely.


  1. gr8 work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.........It’s an amazing post...........with huge information............
    Thanx 4 giving such a beneficial information........

  2. Are you going to have AC or fans? Lots of light for dark days and even nighttime drawing and painting--ahh! Closer and closer! :)

  3. We may get a tiny portable AC, but for now, fans. I'll use one of the lamps with incandescent and fluorescent bulbs, I think--I've got more than one. But YES, closer!
