The New Garden Shed

31 Jul '10 9:34 am
Drat, from here I can't access the name. Did you decide to name it "Pond Cottage"?

I'm curious if you have a specific use in mind for it. Is it large enough to put someone up? A small bed, a desk with a shelves. Maybe it'll be a potting shed, but I have to think you already have an area for that, no? Well, no matter. You can always start with a shed and then get a purpose. Perhaps it'll become a writing salon for wet days.

Moosey, I envy your involvement with making music. I download and play music here a lot but I have to think it would be very gratifying to be in on making it. Then again my arthritic right wrist would be a bigger nuisance than it is if it kept me from being able to play an instrument.

Here in Berkeley, California (US) we've had a long period of cool summer days. We rarely get truly hot days but 70'w and low 80's are not uncommon. What I think is odd about our climate is the slim difference between nightime lows and daytime highs, usually less than 10 degrees F.

Maybe next time you'll give us a show around the inside of new shed.

I love the new shed and look forward to seeing more of it. Rather wish I could have one, in fact lately I've found myself paying a lot of attention to any ads or articles about little portable buildings, yurts, etc.

Ha! Just you wait - photographs of the newly named Pond Cottage will be unleashed this afternoon, after I've tidied up the surrounding gardens. Yesterday I painted it a burnt red colour, and the window frames etc. get to be white. They are typical colours for older-style New Zealand shacks and sheds, old railwaymen's cottages, etc. That's way back in the day when they didn't have 'railwaypersons', by the way...

It's so groovy to get your support for this, too. I am soooooooo happy!

It gets a bed, a bookcase, and an armchair for the verandah - nothing else. And I've just 'bought' (oops) a rustic wooden table and four seats to go on the pond decking. This then becomes Pond Cottage's outdoor dining room. All that's missing is a self-composting toilet and I can offer rural retreats to unsuspecting paying customers...

It's lovely Moosey! I'm certain that soon you won't know how you lived without it... both from within and from without. The reflection is perfect - but we await shots from a few more angles!

There is nothing like a new garden cottage to

bring in the Gnomes. The photo of them gathering near by is heart warming. Build it and they will come. Luckily these gnomes don't look to be so big as too crowd you out of using the new cottage yourself.

Red is the winning color, beating blue hands down. The photo looking across the pond with its reflection every bit as red is a winner too. I should think this will make a nice hermitage to retreat to when the rain picks up and finds you out doing a bit of pruning .. or when you just feel a bit hermitty.

Looking forward to seeing the view from the cottage but of course you are working hard so we shouldn't rush you. (Got any yet?)
