The inside is painted and has a linoleum floor.
There are two windows, one looking out into some trees and the other looking out over the creek (pictured above).
The Secret House started out as a playhouse for our girls. (I had a playhouse growing up and have great memories of it and was hoping to pass the excitement on to our girls). They would use their imagination in playing house. They had play appliances and dishes to assist in making lovely mud pies, decorated with small rocks and grass. They played board games, card games, read their favorite books, and of course, asked "are you done yet". You see, we owned the land for a few years before we built our home. We would spend weekends and spare time mowing and cleaning up junk around the place. We even "camped" over night in the Secret House! Fun, but oh my...not comfortable!
When we sold our previous home, we moved into a rental while we constructed our home on the land. The Secret House became a storage shed. We piled it high with stuff...things that would not fit into our rental.
In the corner, you can see a small rocking chair. A reminder of the Secret House's beginning... a play house, tucked away in the trees, overlooking the creek.
