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.

Planning and dreaming...

Planning and dreaming, originally uploaded by Cathy (Kate) Johnson.
As I've lived with the shed almost daily since June, I've envisioned some changes to the immediate vicinity...a platform feeder visible from my chair, a fire pit near the deck, a crabapple tree to attract birds, a big cedar to block the view of my neighbor's metal shed...

Actually, the house is abandoned since a fire a couple of years ago. The owner started to rehab it and someone broke in and stole all the copper...he said to hell with it.

This is the view...not bad, and I don't see it from my desk or the chair, but if I'm on the deck...not so great.  A tree would be better, and provide a bit more shade in the summer as well as cover for the birds!


  1. I can see how you'd want a tree to block the view you have there. You are creating a whole little world by your art shed. Fun!

  2. Yes, a tree would be really nice to block that garage. And the platform feeder--awesome! Great plans! :)

  3. Years ago, before the house on that lot burned, there was a little wishing well right was cool, too, but an evergreen would be a better block!

    We've about decided to ask our buddy Kevin if we can have one of the big log rounds he's not going to use and attach the platform to that. It would look good, and natural.
