What's that? Look! Peek through the holly hocks!
It's a ride for our damsel in distress (a.k.a. our chicken house soon-to-be Clementine Cottage).
First, he tugged, then he pulled, then out she came.
And down the hill she went.
First step, up on one level of cinder blocks.
Second step, up on three levels of cinder block, make sure to stack it right or it gets wobbly!
Third step, up on to FOUR levels of cinder block. Hope thats high enough...she's listing on that one corner!
Ok, let's see now, will the trailer fit under her? YES!
She looks comfy and ready for a road trip doesn't she? A few straps, chains, flags and wide load signs (sorry dear but you are) and we'll be all set for the 4 mile trip.
Here she comes...is she going to make that corner? Don't slip into the ditch!
No way that would happen with Mr. Dave Lamme in charge! Welcome to your new home Miss Clementine!
I think someone is excited!!
Into the backyard now...
And there she is! This will be her forever home, saved from being razed. See the 4 white squares in the grass? She'll be planted right there, next to our bee boxes. We have big plans for Miss Clementine. Starting with power washing, bleaching, power washing again, then sealing, then the fun stuff! Maybe a pair of old French doors on the front, pea gravel pathway all the way around, European baby tub brimming with flowers, limestone steps across the front, a pair of antique Kramer urns on each front corner, a French watering trough turned into a pond with a fountain.....chandeliers inside, oh we just can't wait to get started!! I know just where to find all these goodies...urban farmhouse!! This is a dream come true...our own little garden folly. Rest assured we'll share pictures as we go. Do you have a garden folly? Please leave us your comments and give us some more inspiration. We would love to hear from you.
