Things I didn't know I needed
1. Giant reclaimed sheet metal roosters. I need at least three. Actually I wouldn't mind several reclaimed sheet metal animals in my yard. I think a donkey would be particularly keen. Note to self: learn to weld.
2. A hanging bed in my garden. Really, all of us need this, don't you think? How cool would this be? A little mosquito netting hanging around the sides and it becomes my summer bedroom. Although a futon type thing would be nicer, something you could sort of fold up and it would become a giant swinging couch? I happen to have a futon that I'm not using in the garage attic. Note to self: increase carpentry skills or befriend Amish men.
I'm determined that this is the year of the patio. A nice simple flagstone deal in the "L" of the house. But that might now include a pergola with a hanging futon off to the side. An outdoor shower would be nice too. I'd better buy some lottery tickets.
3. And a greenhouse. Although I did know that I needed this. Really an entire separate glass house would be nice. That way I could use part of it for a chicken house, attach the outside shower and outside bedroom to one side, connecting to the flagstone patio. Perhaps a fixed grilling station. Theoretically, I could live entirely in my yard for the entire summer And then I'd only ever have to go into the real house to retrieve refrigerated items.....unless......
