Saturday Spot: Se7en + 1 Build A Beach House…

Every year we work on a Summer Nook in the garden, somewhere that will be cool and appealing, a place to chill and rest. One year we took our couch outdoors and this year we have been working for weeks and weeks on our Beach House.


One thing we have in our mountainside home is sunshine, our only shady spot was covered in bushes… So what began as a pack of scrubby bushes has been cleared out completely…

Then we found some garden tiles and laid them down in the sand…


Now it was nice and neat…

The kids built a fence towards the back with all their random sticks – thank heaven they finally found a use for them.

And we made a grand entrance…

And a secret entrance…

It is a place to play, with lots of lovely things to mess around with for little people that like to mess around with stones and bark; and a little dry river bed.

And there are cushions, which make it a good place to take a basket of books to read on hot afternoons…

And there you are a a little place that is child size and playable.

With a fabulous view out…

And pretty much hidden from folk that don’t know it is there…

Yay for Summer!!!

With love from The Gang at Se7en + 1…
