How the Changes Look

We had a big tree taken down this week.

The tree was dangerously dropping limbs and leaning toward the Cottage and house.

The plan is to clear this whole area.

I'm not planning to make an actual structure.

I have been wanting to make a chapel in the yard (#40 on my 101 in 1001 list).

Great is Thy Faithfulness mirrored window would work in an outdoor chapel area.

I don’t have a clear vision of what I’m going for but I do have some ideas like the mirrored window I made here.

The stump is too large to remove so we'll try to work it into the landscaping plan.

And I could use the newly created giant stump as a focal point.

We have a few rounds to choose from.

Perhaps some of the smaller rounds would be good, albeit heavy, stools.

Do you have a special, private outdoor space?

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.
