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.

The shed gets shared...again!

I just got a CD of photos off to RelaxShax's Deek Diedricksen, who is working on a new book on tiny homes and buildings and asked if I'd be willing to share some of the photos of our shed/sanctuary/studio (and a few of my old original cabin too...)

Deek's a great guy, full of talent, energy and plans--if you haven't seen his Tiny Yellow House videos on YouTube, you're in for a treat.  They're fun and funny and inspiring!

Deek's like a throwback to my back-to-the-land days, willing to try things, exploring outrageous solutions that actually WORK.  I've just been reading his Humble Homes book with its energetic drawings--as he describes it, “Gary Larson meets Bob Vila” housing/fort/small house/shack book.  

I'll admit it's got me thinking, too...

And by the way the photo is from yesterday's artwork at the little desk...


  1. The nice thing about watercolors is how little space you need in which to use them! Your shed will be a good addition to his book. You've got a nice design there.

  2. Thank you! And yes, nowhere near as much space as oils or acrylics...or, say, sculpture. :-P

  3. hey- thanks for the nod/post. Blush...
    can't wait to see the photos...

  4. You earned it, kiddo! What a lot of fun stuff you do...and you should get the CD Monday or Tuesday, we sent it Priority.
