The bench

As I sat on the grass in January, obsessing over the exact siting of this building, I dreamed of this bench. I am sitting on it right this very minute as I write this post. The sun is pouring in and I absolutely love this spot.

Below, you can see the little recess where the water pipes come into the building. One of the carpenters cut and finished a nice little piece to cover that space. It's good for sitting on and later, you'll see that I make my own book shelves.

But for now, I was thrilled with the construction of the bench which could not have been more simple or inexpensive. One of the employees at Home Depot gave me instructions on exactly how to construct this. Between the handyman and myself , we put this together in an hour or so.
