Gina to show my drawings of our allotment garden cottage.
We had a tiny "faluröd" / swedish red cottage on our little allotment ground before and it was falling to pieces. So we decided to build a new one. I saved the door and the two windows with glazing bars. The cottage is the same size plus 1 meter wider for a garden tool store with entrance from a dubbel door on the right. On the left of the door we bought two old windows to have a glass corner, it´s helpful when pre-germinating and also a wonderful wiev out in the garden (thanks Per for the idea). The width of the only room inside is exactly the length of a bed. Perfect for relaxing and to bring a cup of tea. The garden is about 20 meters from our appartment just across the street and then a path in to the allotment area.
It would have been a hard time for me to manage life in an appartment without this garden. (I´m really a forest kind of a person.)
We painted the house with falu black paint. The windows and frames are sun-yellow and gold-ocher linseed oil paint.
Here some pics from the inside. My husbands pics from the allotment garden.
I´m so happy that we conducted this life-affirming project!
A huge Thank You, to the ones involved!
