I am simply aflame with envy. Your garden is breathtaking and I must have that little pink house. I know your plan is to stucco. But, there is a sweet humor to a pink teahouse.


I want to climb those black steps and step inside. Or crawl rather.

I am aflaming here too. That round window is sooo inviting as is the panoramic view.


Mark is a happy man now that he's back to work on this project! And I'm thrilled at the speed with which it is taking shape by adding the styrofoam panels. Before, you had to really be able to visualize just from looking at the framework.


I love the view from the bottom of the black steps.


mark - you have been busy! what a treat to see the faces of the tea house come to life since seeing the skeleton framing just a few weeks ago... while it appears simply constructed, the care you've taken in the jointing details must've been more complex to achieve, no? well done, i look forward to seeing its next construction series...


Hi Andrea! It's been pretty exciting watching it take shape suddenly. If you are good at visualization, then I think one could picture the final building. I have looked at it a long time as well as hundreds of images in books and quite a few tea houses in person, so I could do it.

But this is a great leap forward in getting the feel of how it will eventually look. Also a bit of a shock to suddenly sit inside a space that has always been open to the breeze and the view. Now every view is controlled and planned.

The round window is definitely the main attraction of the teahouse! I like the view from your back deck. Is it finished? Your first visitors were probably impressed with what you've done!
