'Cottage' Overlooking a Pond: After

Who: Larry J.
Where: Mount Sinai, NY

The shed looks like a cottage overlooking a pond. It has many focal points and looks equally good up close at the edge of the pond or from my kitchen window. It has color from the plantings throughout three seasons. It has even brought two mallard ducks to the pond every day the past two springs. There is no greater satisfaction than taking an idea in your mind and transforming with your hands into something that gives you pleasure each time you look at it. It makes you realize anything is possible if you put your mind to it. This project was well worth all the time and effort put into it.

Who did the work: I did most of the work myself.
Cost: $10,000 to $25,000
