I ADORE Sabrina and Freeland Tanner. They’re garden designers in Napa, California, and have more energy than anyone else I know. (View some previous posts featuring their work HERE, HERE, and HERE) I’ve visited their garden I think 3 times now, and I can’t wait to go back again to see their new garden temple that they’re sharing with us today.
Sabrina says, “We were originally going to build a barn on this platform, but Freeland came up with the design of something more special and interesting…..a temple. The middle section was built first, all from 100% reclaimed wood and grape vines from an old homestead in the Napa Valley. The decorative column caps are antique barn trolleys we purchased. The section to the right is a garden room, to sit in and read or view out on the garden. The section to the left is my tool shed.
“All the siding, doors, roofing materials, and interior beams are reclaimed or recycled building materials. Freeland has electrified the building and has hung some of his custom made light fixtures for evening enjoyment and atmosphere. I hope this inspires some gardeners next time they build a shed for themselves!”
Gorgeous, Sabrina. You guys never cease to amaze me.
