My Post & Beam Tea House

As spring nears and the snow is finally melting here in northern New England, I find myself gazing out the window at our tea house. What is it about a separate “room” unto itself sitting in the middle of a woodland garden that beckons? Gee…I wonder! 



First, let me begin by showing you what our tea house looks like in winter.Yankee Barn Homes Teahouse  

Beautiful, isn’t it? But not a place to linger when it’s 15 degrees above zero.  
Now allow me to show you what happens once the snow melts and spring arrives.Tea house

Within weeks of the snowmelt, bulbs shoot up, new mulch is laid down and green leaves begin to emerge. To say its gorgeous is an understatement.Post & Beam Living Garden  

Are you beginning to understand why this separate room in the woods calls to me?

As I stand at my window now that winter has past and spring is just around the corner, it’s no wonder I gaze longingly toward the tea house. I CAN NOT WAIT to get out there!
