BEFORE AND AFTER: THE EXTERIOR OF OUR HOUSE

THIS WAS OUR HOUSE 10 YEARS AGO RIGHT BEFORE WE BOUGHT IT….WE FLEW IN FROM DENVER AND LITERALLY HAD 24 HOURS TO PUT SOMETHING UNDER CONTRACT!!
YES, THE HOUSE WAS UGLY….BUT IT COULDN'T GET ANY WORSE….ANYTHING WOULD BE AN IMPROVEMENT!!
NEW WINDOWS, PAINT, RAILINGS, LANDSCAPING, DOOR, LIGHTING, ETC…..
WE JUST FINISHED THE LAST PROJECT…HARDSCAPE! 
THE NEW WALKWAY AND DRIVEWAY WAS THE LAST ON THE LIST. 
HOUSE IS FINISHED!!
(FOR NOW!)
