When our boys’ were young, this used to be their sleeping shack.

Barb has made it her own little Library now. She is half Swedish, so she picked the Swedish name,

Liten Lektyr Stuga which means Little Library House.

The room on the left is the library. It measures 8’ x 10’, the right half is the tool shed. It’s made for short people, so I bump my head on the lower portion.

Some interior images.

Sounds like a wonderful hideaway. Have you migrated up there yet?

Dick….you have no idea how jealous I am of your piece of paradise. What a wonderful looking place. The boys must have loved it, and what a great place to read a book. You character shows in the place…..it would be difficult to imagine a place more comfortable and friendly looking.

that is MY kinds of get-away.
These multi-million dollar “cottages” don’t tickle my fancy. It just seems to me that I’d be spending my time housekeeping! I hate housekeeping.

and to Barb: ... I’ll see how close I get with this (without accents of course) Hej da. Hur mar du? Jag mar fint.

You and Barb must be related to Laura Ingalls Wilder of Little House on the Prairie fame… beautiful sign craftwork for a delightful building.

It has Walleye, but I haven’t fished for years now. I have more fun chiseling, & moving dirt around. I made 250 feet of road with my trusty number 2 shovel, & wheelbarrow.
