I thought it would be fun to do a weekly series sharing the transformation of our home.
We've lived here for 15 years, and completed a remodel 5 years ago,
while living in our delightful 1938 basement for 6 months...can you say f-u-n!!
So, without further ado...
Here is the gem I found, if only I had a picture of mr. simple's expression
when we drove up and I said, "I LOVE it!"
I'm sure he was having second thoughts about his wife of three months.
I don't think I've ever mentioned it, but handy, diy and power tools aren't in his DNA!
As they say, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
View looking from the front porch out to the street.
Have you ever seen such a beautiful mess of jungle, weeds and trees?
All I saw was that gorgeous flagstone walkway and those massive landscape rocks!
(you saw them, right?)
A few months later...
A year and a half later...
Two years later...view from front porch out to the street.
mr. simple gets credit for the lawn and garden!
So, would you have
run in opposite direction bought a beautiful new home
paid more than asking price to insure you had a project for years to come?
