I am a bit behind posting about the house next door. They are flying and I'll post some more pictures of the progress in the next couple days (after I take the pictures). But let's get caught up with the pictures I do have!
The house now has a driveway and a walkway with steps leading up to it. It looks very nice. They have more steps than we do. We have one step then the porch steps. We really have a flat lot!
Here's a view of the steps/walkway.
Here's a view of the whole house and driveway.
I got home from work one day and was so excited to find landscaping! The landscaping is exciting because that goes in before sprinklers and GRASS!
This is the side of the house next door that faces our house. Note all the grass that is already there. That is ours. Before we got grass we thought our lot was smaller than it really was and thought the grass was on the neighbors lot. Turned out that we had a bigger lot than we thought and have more side yard! Yay. You'll notice the house next door doesn't have much side yard. It's also nice that there is a good distance between our house and the new one. Then we aren't right on top of each other. Ok. Ok…here's the picture.
This is the same side of the house, but including the corner of the house.
Continuing to move around the house…
The far side of the house.
The tree on the far side of the house. There's another one like this in the back yard. I think these are Honeylocust trees.
The whole house.
So now you are all caught up with all the pictures I have taken so far. Next for our house, we have to get some trees planted this fall in the back yard. I was hoping to wait until I found out what trees were going to be planted on the boulevard. I don't want to plant the same thing in the yard.
Chuck also built some shelves. Some in the garage and some in the basement. I should take pictures of those! I know you are dying to see pictures of shelves!
