Here's the house in all it's glory in a picture from the realtor's website, (we bought in February, so all our outside pictures are full of snow). We're lucky because the previous owner redid the siding, roof, and windows. When the weather gets better, we'll remove the concrete sidewalk that goes to the street, and make a brick path from the driveway along the porch. Overall, not that bad of a before picture:
Here we have the lonely back yard that's just begging for a deck with room for entertaining, (sigh, maybe next summer):
Or the Man Cave as I've been calling it. Mike has grand plans for his garage, including room for 2 1/2 cars, heat, refrigerator, and I'm sure some bikini clad calendars. Before all his dreams come true, we have to demolish the glorified shed that sits in it's spot right now. This picture actually makes is look somewhat decent. Don't let it fool you, the inside has a gravel base, leaning walls, and (yeah) termites!
