Upgrade at the Wee Little House

We have always called our shed the Wee Little House (to distinguish it from “The Little House” which is what we sometimes call “The Cottage” at The Glade).

The shed is tucked under the trees in the east yard.

Recently I saw these photos and had the idea to do something similar in front of the shed.

I asked Charlie if he thought we could do this project, just the two of us.

There's a mirror hanging on the front of the shed just for the fun of it.

I think the shed will be sooo cuuuute with a little deck.

I don’t know when yet but I think by the end of summer we’ll have a little deck outside the Wee Little House.

Do you have a long to-do list that you just keep adding to? Or are you sane?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
