Trees are Down, Fence is Down

September 1, 2011

Whoa, things are happening around here!  All the crazy overgrown mulberries are gone, the stumps were ground today so we’ll be able to replant with something more reasonable, and Jamie had some fun demo-ing the “front yard fence”.  Now you can actually see our house!  …and it is completely bare and new-constructiony.  We have plans to fix that soon.

This weekend we’ll remove those fence posts (and be “we” I mean Jamie), and then we’ll rebuild part of the fence so it encircles our backyard/side yard, but not the front yard. I have plans to plant big white hydrangeas below the front picture window.

Oh and we’re going to have those arches over the window painted white.  Right now they’re the same purple color as the house, the photo above was just expertly photoshopped by Jamie.  You like??

Oh, and let me just remind you of the before picture, for fun:

    Incredible how you have opened it up, let light in and featured your house architecture! Amazing. And YES the white arches over the windows will look great. I have been surprised they were all painted monochromatic. You must already be thrilled at the progress. You neighbors should throw you a party for neighborhood improvement!

    This is fantastic Sarah! Wow..your neighbors must be thrilled to have you there! Are you still thinking of painting it yellow? …or did I make up that color? You now have an empty canvas to do your creative touches!
