Frankie Dog House for Children's Literature Garden

Construction has begun!

My papa was hard at work this past Sunday with his nail gun, table saw and lumber constructing my dog house that will be a part of  Bookworm Gardens, which is a beeeeautiful garden based on children's literature and it is in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  Grand opening is October 16-17 in conjunction with Sheboygan Children's Book Festival with events at the Sheboygan Mead Library, surrounding schools and John Michael Kohler Arts Center.  It is going to be a grand weekend of fun!

Here's a sneak peek of my dog house, which will have a cathedral ceiling (oh my!) along with my name on the front and will be painted periwinkle (as if you thought it would be any other color!).  Stay tuned for updates on the progress...

First wall is complete!

Looks like papa is in the dog house again... tee hee

Inspecting papa's workmanship now that all four walls are done!
