Donna Kohler

Realtor & Creative Dreamer

All my life I've been a curious person and always wanted to learn how things are made, to do it myself brings great satisfaction.

Besides sewing and miscellaneous crafts I've done woodworking, silversmithing jewelry, bread making, antique sewing machine restoring, and am now writing.

My favorite quote is by George Bernard Shaw, "We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing."

So, I play often, enjoy my castle shed, and having tea time with friends.

My castle shed, designed after the Amersfoort Koopelpoort.

Castle Shed

In September 2014 I made a small Foamcore model of the shed I wanted in the back yard. My husband and I built it ourselves, often with much struggle, we are not builders. It is designed to remind me of the Amersfoort Koppelpoort water gate built in the 1400s in Holland. Interior lights and the outside torch lights are solar powered so every evening it is lit. We enjoy the view much more than the fence and a few bushes.
