Okay, so i’ve been on hiatus for awhile now, what with the moving back in and getting settled and life in general, but i have some new photos.
The outside of our house (pre-reno):
The outside (post-reno, pre-paint, not a real door)
The outside (post-paint, and with 30 cubic yards of soil dumped on the front lawn):
We decided to level the front yard to match the height of the yard next door. The kids had a blast body-surfing down the giant pile of dirt – it was the ‘most fun EVER’, according to daughter. They begged me not to spread it out, but alas, i am hard-hearted, and also wanting to do some landscaping.
Thus, after five days of a LOT of shoveling (and some help from quite possibly the nicest neighbours in the history of neighbourhoods anywhere):
Now onto some planting! (picture me gleefully rubbing my hands together…)
