|BEFORE: (7/12) Five weeks after move in. Pretty great, with the exception of our old furniture.|
|BEFORE: (3/13) Lots of small doors and a mismatched wooden barrier we put up to hide HVAC.|
|BEFORE: (3/13) A weird planting spot just outside one of the doors and small metal poles too close to|
the water to allow for walking room were two concerns.
|BEFORE: (4/13) The painting of the fence was nail biting time for me. I also took out|
grass plants that turned during winter and replaced them with green-year-round boxwoods.
|AFTER: (6/13) The fence being painted brown really was a smart move.|
Actually makes the white brick 'pop' more and gives the illusion of a larger space.
|AFTER: (6/13). The Pergola and new windows/doors/roof/hardware installed. Exterior living space doubled!|
|AFTER: (6/13)Where I'm spending all of my time.. rain or shine...|
|AFTER: (6/13) The almost completed space (notice the wires-- new speaker system is in the works|
and a new lantern is being shipped to replace the one by the door).
