My Tiny Garden House

One lucky little boy has a new Garden House at My Tiny Plot. I was saving the space under the deck to make a fern garden or rockery one of these days. But honestly, I’m not that into non-edibles and I’ve been stalling with this project like a schoolboy avoiding homework. It seemed like a chore. Then one day I was watching Jackson playing in the garden and I noticed that he spends a disproportionate amount of time ‘messing’ under the deck. Poking things with sticks, chasing the cats, picking up dubious items and looking like he might eat them. The usual for a two-year-old.

That’s when it struck me that the space under our deck would make a perfect play house area. And… it would release me from the chore of having to make something of it. Genius!

It would have to be a bespoke house since it was to fill such an unusual shape. So, I rang a local joiner that we’ve worked with before and he came and he built Jackson a gorgeous Little Garden House complete with window boxes and everything. We even had electricity put in so he could use it more out of season if he wants to. We’re so happy with it and Jackson is, as you can imagine, over his little moon.

  1. That is so sweet! I wish I had somewhere to have a ‘secret’ house for my daughter!

  2. Gosh, what a well constructed house. So beautiful with the planters and white gravel. A few of my friends have gone for the flat packed timber houses on a platform and ladder. This is bespoke – in fact, i wonder if it could fit a laptop and a very small adult!

  3. How brilliant! I love just those sort of ideas. Very creative and resourceful. It looks Gorgeous!

  4. That is the cutest little house – its adorable. Where can I get the adult sized version?

  5. This is just lovely – particularly the window boxes. Nice choice of colour too!

  6. How cute is that???!!!
    Jackson is very lucky indeed…I want one… :)
