This is a different project. I usually post furniture, but I made this little garden house for my back yard this past summer. It’s made with ground contact approved wood for the base, then treated decking wood for the floor, 2X4 studs and trusses, OSB for the outside. I used cement siding for the outside, and got shingles that matched my home’s for the roof. Inside I used tongue and groove siding for the walls and ceiling. I got a pre-hung out-swing door and painted it to match the shutters. The shutters are made from engineered wood as well as the trim and the flower box. The lights are standard porch lights, and inside is a standard type ceiling light. I did use low voltage current off my landscape lighting for safety. I used RV 12-volt incandescent bulbs, and all the lights are on a photo lens to come on at dusk and stay on for 8 hours. It looks neat at night, especially when snow is on the ground. The house made for a good highlight for our back yard landscaping.
