Once upon a time, not so many years ago, in an old apple orchard
overlooking a pond, a young couple was given an 8x10 shed to call their own.
This wasn't going to be an ordinary shed. They put up insulation.
Then came the drywall.
They wired it for electric and added a fan for circulation.
They painted the walls soothing colors and added a big window for extra light.
The floor was washed with a coordinating blue. A platform was built to support a twin mattress which would act like a couch on rainy days and at night the two would squeeze in for a restful slumber under the first roof they could call their own. A few select pieces were added like a mini fridge, music, and a shining silver star.
They planted a little garden,
added an outdoor shower
and an outdoor 'kitchen'.
Their garden grew as the sunny days passed.
As the sun set and the twilight came upon them, they would sit in their chairs overlooking the pond listening to the crickets and frogs chatter. Deer would wander in the field across the water and the cool night air would settle in. Later they would build a fire, sit and watch the flames crackle and try to count the fireflies. This was the good life.
