Today I am showing you the pictures of The Summerhouse up at our home in Michigan. I posted some pictures of the house, which is also blue, over the winter. These are pictures from last summer. I'll post new pictures this summer when I have all my pots of flowers and patio furniture out. But for now I have just a few I want to share now. Above is a side view from the patio.
This is another side view that shows the cute little front porch. Of course it is not finished. We have a nice view of the lake from this porch and I have two old white glider rockers that go on here (but not yet) and it is just one of many places I have to sit and read or visit with someone or just look out at the water.
The idea for The Summerhouse came about when I saw a picture in Better Homes & Gardens, where a couple loved their shed and it's location in the back of their yard surrounded by big trees and plants. They decided to turn it into a little place to hang out in. A little table and chairs and a small bed. It was darling! The Husband said, "We can do that with our shed!". Well as usual, our ideas balloon and soon the shed was not big enough for what we wanted so we had Resident Carpenter listen to our ideas and he designed our little home away from home away from home!! :-D
We were up at the cottage this weekend. I haven't been going because R.C. is renovating the kitchen and two bathrooms and there is drywall dust everywhere. I have asthma so I can't be around it. Also, all of our furniture is covered and everything in my kitchen is packed away. But since we were having weather in the 80's here in this neck of the woods, I agreed to go because I could hang in The Summerhouse. Some of you may know, we have two twin beds that fold out of the wall, hidden by doors. I have wicker furniture, a television and a ceiling fan that is also a heater. On Saturday it rained but two of my girlfriends came over and we sat in The Summerhouse catching up on all the gossip that went on over the winter on the lake. Fun! I make it a point not to gossip but I love to listen!! ;-)
Waking up on Sunday morning it was like finding myself in a birdhouse tucked up in a tree. The sun was shining and the breeze was blowing through the windows. We had bagels and instant coffee and all was good.
