Our Home

So here's the view of our little house from 3rd South. There used to be heart gingerbread trim on the porch and porch rails with heart cutouts. Many thanks go to my brother-in-law Brandon for demolishing those for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

You can see the young privet hedge that goes along the sidewalk. It goes around most of the property's circumference. We need to weed, dig out, and mulch the entire thing. Clint got a couple of yards done while he was here, but we still have a long way to go.

We love the front door of the house. I especially like the carved sunburst panels in the center. The sellers made the stained glass window. It needs a new coat of varnish or some kind of protective layer. And we need to get the deadbolt lock keyed so we can use it more.

It is gorgeous!! Especially the beautiful woodwork inside. Post more pictures as you get the yard fixed up. I'm excited to see how it looks when you're done!

Thank you. We really like it. It'll be good to work on the yard, but I don't think it'll ever be "done". There is always something more.

Love it. New homes are nice but old homes are awesome.
