I had an old Tuff Shed (Premier Ranch model) in the backyard
that I used to store garden tools, bird seed, Christmas decor, and
a lot of stuff that needed relocating to the garbage can.
Writers need a quiet, peaceful place to spin their stories, and my house was
anything but that, so I decided to give the 8×12 shed a new life …
All the junk is gone, and now the work begins.
That’s my elderly sweetheart, Gizmo.
He waits for me to come to work every morning.
We insulated the walls and covered with cedar planks.
My desk is a massive stand-up, sit-down desk, so I’m lucky it fit!
That’s a heater on the wall. The blue tape on the computer is covering
the camera, in case my computer gets hacked. It happens.
The skylight was already in the Tuff Shed.
I was lucky to find a fan that would work with the ceiling height and clearance.
We used inexpensive doors from Home Depot to make the Dutch Door
and windows. Then made simple framed screens.
The Dutch Door doesn’t have a screen, so humming birds often fly in and
hover in front of my computer to say, “Howdy,” before zipping out.
Next on my wish list is an awning over the door.
And yup, that’s a glass of wine on my desk.
And now I need a new garden shed.
