So much progress has been made since these were taken but I will show you just ‘cuz I haven’t taken new ones yet!

This is NOT the final color of the exterior. It has since been painted and I can’t wait to show you what it looks like now.

The latter two images are of the back of the house and back side corner, respectively. Love that wood there.

Enjoy!

Wow!! Let’s take a visit down memory lane, shall we?

Here is my intention for the space:

I’d like to create a peaceful space where Yoga can be practiced. I’d like it to be a beautiful non-distracting space with light, air, and cleanliness. This will be a space for serenity. So mote it be.

And here is the transformation process, photo by photo, beginning January 2, 2012.

Now this is far from complete, but see the transformation? See the beautiful change from dark to light? I am loving it and feeling more peaceful every time I look at it.

Task List

Clean above the board (ceiling storage)

fix rotten boards all around

remove all ivy and dirt, clean and wash floors, etc

put up siding

wrap windows around the corner

put windows up on the rear side

stack wood pieces

hoses? use or toss

find new owner for walnut table

move coffee table (or use within the space)

garden tools- space for them

wheelbarrow- space for it

fix cement of floor

paint door outside and in

paint walls white, then mural

paint floor/bamboo mats?

run electricity to the house

sachets

plant pyrethrum and mint around the house

There’s a lot to do, as you can see. I’m sure as we keep going, there may be more still. This is an ongoing list, not all the tasks on it are able to be accomplished yet.

I have labored intensively! Over weeks! Sometimes I work on painting the glorious coffee table which is progressing nicely, don’t you think? Yes, it’s for sale. You can see I store it currently in the Little House. However, it shall be gloriously clean and stored elsewhere as soon as it’s done.

Well well, we’ve cleared out two broken/rusty/old white garden chairs (I disliked them because when I was about 4, one upended me into the grass), a rotten ladder, several old plastic bags smelling of animal urine, several recycle bins with mouse nests in them (eeeyuuuuchhhh), a deceased mouse, some random metal pieces, a flat dirty basketball, a drawer (from a set of…), a grate from a hibachi grill, a beach chair, anything I’m missing??

More serene already.

As for the mice problem- I looked it up online, apparently mice dislike mint, clove, and holly, and bounce fabric softener sheets. I shall craft sachets.

I grew up in a home on a hill with a little house in the backyard. Many hours of play were spent in this little yellow house, which was once (long ago) a chicken coop- to our childish delight!

So in more recent years, this playhouse has become the clutter-gathering-ground. Have a tool? Put it in the shed. Have old furniture? Put it in the shed. Have sculpture and nowhere to display it? In the shed.

Something shall change! As you can see, there is barely a path to walk into the Little House. There is furniture, recycle bins, twigs for kindling, tools for yard work, metal sculpture, hoses, wood bins, and unfinished projects throughout the space. This looks like a task for…. Serenity Woman!

I’d like to create a peaceful space where Yoga can be practiced. I’d like it to be a beautiful non-distracting space with light, air, and cleanliness. This will be a space for serenity. So mote it be.

Keep tuning in! Several more updates to come, soon.
