Adhering to up on my post about our household renovation plans (or lack-thereof, is extra like it), I wanted to share more details on how the new patterns may well impact our home’s exterior. Far more especially: the entrance façade.

To be trustworthy, sharing the present-day exterior of our home pains me fairly a little bit. Other than acquiring our 130 calendar year previous brick repainted previous year, it’s been sorely neglected as we have often had plans to deal with it and didn’t want to sink a lot into it until we could do it appropriate

We have been fairly bummed out about it at the time, but I comprehend now that the universe functions in mysterious strategies. If we experienced absent with our primary designs and invested in our entrance landscaping (including a new walkway) we would have experienced to hold the place of our present front door and by no means could have finished up here. Evidence after again that points occur for us, not to us. A lesson I have learned time and time once again. Satisfied mishaps for the get! home exterior before after r2
