Today I wanted to show you our work in progress. I have dreamed of this little garden house for years. I have collected windows and architectural features for years as well. This picture was taken last Saturday. As you can see my DH is hard at work. I kept busy as well holding the trusses in place, even putting in a few screws and painting the Hobbit sized front door and the antique gingerbread spandrel that will grace the front eve of the garden house as well.
The finished house will be 12 feet long by 8 feet wide. It will be multi use, featuring a sleeping loft for summer use as a tiny guest house, and an antique fireplace mantel, fitted with an electric 'fire' for warming it when I am using it as a green house in the early spring.
Keep checking back and I will keep you posted as it progresses during the snatches of time my DH can eek out of his busy work and social schedule ...
For instance, this Saturday will include watching our daughter in a horse show, then a few hours off (working on the garden house I hope) before hitting the water park with the grands to celebrate Father's day. Wish us well and keep coming back to see our work in progress!!
