Project Title: Seren”dip”ity Room
Project Description: A “Garden Dip” experience on Whidbey Island. Born Spring 2010, a room with a Garden and Harbor View. Doors fold open to the west, sunsets, & Great Evening Skies. Windows are placed for Views Out, while views from the Outside In are blocked. In the garden, windows are hanging from a trellis and set on posts that sway on their old hinges.
Salvage Materials Used: Materials from The RE Store – Doors, Windows, & the Claw Foot Tub. Other Salvage: Cedar Shakes, 2×4 lumber, miss mixed paint from local stores Broken concrete and brick for the floor. Garage sales: furniture, lighting and art, AND Seashells from the beach. Window coverings – hand towels trimmed in old beads. In garden – windows and hinges, old fence sections, metal window grates as fence sections, salvaged gate and driftwood set on end between trellis rails as easy fence barrier (which fools the dogs).
Instructions or Advice: Think outside the box…. Build as you go, DON’T Worry – Be Happy!
