My DH and I finished another project over the long weekend. He made a gnome house to cover our fish pond pump....I even had the right size gnome to live there! Notice that he even put a door knocker and door knob with lock on the tiny door!

Oh my, y'all just amaze me. That is way too cute! Really love the shutters. And the arched door and windows and the colors and the gnome. Nice, nice job.

Ditto, ditto, everyone's remarks. It couldn't be more perfect. That hardware is a"door"able.

Thanks all....yes, the back is open for ventilation. The wood for the roof, window trim and door are recycled from our glider that we revamped earlier this spring and the hardware is jewelry box hardware that DH had in his shop stash. He worked for a large, local hardware store for 25 years, so we have our own store practically.

I love it! And better yet, it hides something unsightly too! I love the little hardware on the door and the pretty little windows (with screens on no less). It almost looks like your DH built it in scale to that cute gnome. As froufrou put it simple a-door-able! he-he
