Chiseled out this window. Used old fencing for the roof.

Added our gnomes that I have collected over the years via my daughters. Planted petunias and begonis and mulched. Layed some broken bricks at the front door for a path.

    I love this idea for my soon to be stump. They actually make little decorations and rooms for gnomes now. Can't wait.
