2 weeks of researh

1 weekend of driving to find stores

1 saturday of measuring and searching, consulting with a woodworker

and learning a lot and still looking.

It’s a journey!

Here are the options we are now planning.

In the beginning, we wanted to find a salvaged arched brownstone door.  But it’s very hard to find the right size!  So, we let go of that plan, and now going with glass arch top and 2 tall rectangular doors.

Arched doors we were looking at.. seemed to almost fit, but not quite.

some pieces from Terrain…  Although our garden probably wont be ready for any entertainment until next year,  we are excited about how we want it to feel like.

Top floor is in pretty bad condition.  Especially since the roof is leaking.  Don’t be scared, it will be beautiful once all is done.

At this moment – parlor floor

Our place now – the blue of the parlor floor is quite shocking.

The drawing for the rental unit is almost finalized.  Will post it this weekend.

This year we will be busy just clearing the garden, but next year~  we want to have an area for herbs!  I like this idea of small jars – can keep the soil fresh.
