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 in Context



People sometimes wonder where the shed IS; it looks like it's out in the woods, and feels like it too, sometimes...if you look in the right direction.  Here, the outlines of the old raised beds that get too much shade to be gardens now, the white martin house just visible at the top of this shot, and the shed, in autumn gold.


The old yellow Victorian to the left is where we live...the shed's only a few steps from the back door...and food, and running water, and all the comforts of home.  Unlike our original cabin, I can get there in all seasons, and do.


The blue house at right is our neighbor...the shed's on a vacant lot I bought with the house there burned down.  It was my garden for years, till the trees grew up too much.  Now it's a lovely jungle and a buffer from the street.

So my "tiny house in landscape" is a tiny house in an URBAN landscape!  Glad Joseph got these shots today...

  1. Oh yes! I knew it was close in actuality. But it is still a get-away!! And a lovely, cozy one. :)

    1. You feel like you're a million miles from civilization when you're out there...if you ignore the traffic sounds!

  2. It's really hard to believe that our old house fit in there. I love the woodsy feel!

    1. I know, it is! Well, it was REALLY close to the house just south, and as I recall there was only about 10-12 feet between your house and ours, isn't that about right? They were snug!

  3. Beautiful photos! We decked out our back shed not log ago and completely re-organised it! I used storage products from a place called Rackmart, which you can buy online and deliver. It was really useful! You can check it out here:
