Partyboat is the new Houseboat

So we have this building on our property.  It's not really a shed because it's finished inside and it's rather nice-ish.  It's not really a guesthouse because there is no bathroom.  It's not really a pool house because we own no pool.  We call it the houseboat because we figure what's important is to agree on a totally arbitrary name that makes no sense at all.

When we moved in, it quickly became storage for just about everything (including my extensive collection of chairs.)  We don't have a photo of the storage bonanza because while we love photodocumenting, we hate clutter.  (we = Nicci.)  Instead, here is an artist's rendition of what the houseboat looked like inside:

Basically it was a whole big pile of tandem bikes and mid-century modern chairs.  Also the walls were cream.  And orange.  Eww!  So we pulled everything out.

We painted.  (Did I mention it was cream and orange?)

And then we made it into a comfy outdoor-ish living space.

Eventually there will be a fridge/kegerator, perhaps a bar and maybe even some sort of decorative scheme.  For now, it's a great place to drink beer and play cards!
