The next day, we received this email:
“Here are some pictures of the chair with the front of the house. I usually have it under the Maple tree beside the turquoise bench (that way when we sit outside, we get shade). I do intend to make a second chair for the other side of the bench and likely will paint it the same colour.
Thanks for the painting compliment. I do all the painting and no, I am not a professional—just lots of practice and I enjoy doing it.
We’ve had tons of compliments about the door and the Pedra decking. Thanks.
BTW—the cedar posts will be stained black later this summer—they had to weather for a year first. Plus I’m hoping for less heat. And, if you look closely those are indeed hockey sticks sticking out of the cream can by the door. My son plays hockey—I figured if they had to be kept on the porch by the door, they might as well look good being there. I’m waiting for an epiphany about the newspaper recycle and then that will change!
When I’m done all that, I’ll likely be back at Windsor bugging Brad about the next project!”
My husband spent his summer building this hobbit house for our son. I was afraid at first as it started to take over our backyard, I thought he was in over his head…but he build this beautiful structure that my son and his friends love to play in. We have had many visits from all our neighbours wondering why there is grass hanging over the top of our fence and why there is a chimney stack sticking up from the mound of grass! We have even been told our neighbours have seen people hanging over the fence trying to take pictures of our hobbit house! Hope you enjoy 🙂

Pictures attached are of a front door renovation completed during the summer of 2014.
The door, door moulding, door hardware, railings and decking/steps material (Pedra hardwood) were all purchased from Windsor Plywood, Langley. This DIY renovation was completed by the owners and they love the final results.
