Our Fantasy Building

We purchase 2 sets of windows and a set of french doors from various salvage yards in the are to be used in our new garden house. The garden house will be a 10 x 20 ft building divided into three parts and built for fun and fancy. In other words it is not strictly utilitarian and hopefully will be an enjoyable place to pot plants, quilt, or read. One end will house the garbage/recycle and lawnmower, a central portion will be a potting area with a sink, garden tools, seed packets etc. You get the idea. And then a general purpose room.
We decided to use recycled windows and doors to add to the charm of the building. We did find some good ones, with almost a cottage appeal but the paint was horrid and peeling, and it was certainly a labor of love.
