Pursuing up on my publish about our household renovation designs (or deficiency-thereof, is far more like it), I required to share a lot more details on how the new styles could possibly have an effect on our home’s exterior. Much more exclusively: the entrance façade.

To be sincere, sharing the recent exterior of our home pains me very a bit. Other than having our 130 year aged brick repainted final 12 months, it is been sorely neglected as we’ve normally had plans to address it and didn’t want to sink a lot into it till we could do it ideal

We have been quite bummed out about it at the time, but I know now that the universe is effective in mysterious means. If we experienced gone with our initial ideas and invested in our entrance landscaping (together with a new walkway) we would have had to retain the place of our present front door and hardly ever could have finished up here. Proof at the time again that items transpire for us, not to us. A lesson I have discovered time and time once again. Delighted incidents for the acquire! home exterior before after r2
