We are finished with the house

We are finished with the house and are receiving any number of compliments, which makes us feel good.  It's also so nice to drive up to the house and pull in the driveway and see this splendid home.

We actually finished in October, but this is the first chance I've had to post anything (please see the post about canning and freezing for an explanation).

Some before and after shots.

Before the painting started.  This is the front of the house and it's summer.

This is winter so the grass looks dreary, but it's the same house.  Can you even believe it?
The front and side before the work......

....And after.

The side of the house with phantom husband standing in the backyard.  Also, very green and in bloom.

Not green and not in bloom, but you can see the entire thing!

Husband scrapping before painting and before we bought our new bistro set.
The bistro set seemed perfect and it matched the house!  Now we can eat and drink wine.  We can also clean up the yard.  Baby steps.
