The Shrieking Shack update
Through the Fall and Spring it will get window boxes, an arbor along the driveway side, and diamond-shaped slate tiles along the bottom. There will also be an outside potting table underneath the window beside the door. Then there's the interior.
The door was in the garage when we moved in 14 years ago. I talked to the person that lived in the house in the 1960s this weekend. She took the door out and stored it in the garage after some interior renovations. I thanked her.
It's coming together very quickly mostly because my groundskeeper has been priming and pre-painting the clapboards and shingles. Even earlier in the week when it rained, she was painting in the basement for hour upon hour. We'll only have to do some touch-up painting when it's put together.
The Harry Potter garden may not get put in by Garden Walk Buffalo. Our house number is 215, but we'll make this 215 and 3/4. And we may dub it the Shrieking Shack. Muggles wouldn't understand.
