Garden View Cabin and Greenhouse
Our friend jokingly put in his request for some upgrades to the "hotel" and said he would come back to stay again during the next summer. So, we went above and beyond is requests by adding insulation, walls, paint, carpet, beds, tables, mirror and even air conditioning. We added a deck area to sit and look out over the garden too.
My husband and I camped out in it one night and it was a very cozy rustic atmosphere making it feel like we were really camping. Luckily we had the house nearby for facilities. Our friend was a little disappointed when he was coming to visit and we had to tell him that the cabin was not available for him. My husband's parents were also here during that same time (for my son's graduation) and they had "reserved" the cabin. He came back several weeks later with his son-in-law and grandson and all three of them were able to stay in the cabin.
Our plan is to have this as a multi-use building now. In the fall I will move some plants in to extend the season. In the spring I will start my seeds and put them in the "greenhouse" I will not be making a mess in there now as I would have if it were just a potting shed. My husband plans to put vertical shelves up the entire window wall for the growing plants. The project evolved into a great Garden View Cabin and Greenhouse.
