After a long hiatus, Mark has been making progress on his Tea House in recent weeks. The plastic sheeting that has covered the windows lo these many years has finally been replaced by glass!
This project has been years in the making because every step has pretty much required Mark to not only design the given element but to teach himself how to build it — and often requires buying new kinds of tools and materials to do the specific job at hand. Currently our garage is a wood shop and both cars are living in the driveway.
The two windows above now have permanent glass panes in them but the door between them is still temporary while Mark ponders its ultimate replacement.
This view from inside the tea house is looking toward the front of the structure where a high narrow window wraps around the corner. In the lower left you can see more plastic covering the low front door. To enter by that door one needs to bend down and crawl in.
This is the view from the same window as above but at standing height. The view looks across the stepping stones that span the stream to the fence Mark built across the back of our property.
