So, we have been at this house for two years now, and I guess it's actually time to do something with the yard/paint/amazing amount of bushes that came with it.
It is still a work-in-progress, thus the 'Part 1' label.
|First view of the house at our showing - pre-purchase|
|Not too exciting, but first order of business was taking down the trellice on the left side and the plants along the right wall. Right side was replaced with bushes. I took out the green plastic barrier and added black mulch.|
|Next: New windows and painting the wood a neutral color|
|Not the outside, but can be seen from the outside, and completes the porch, so here's the front door. Before/After|
Before/After of the porch light
|This pic shows the new window in the middle room and removal of more bushes. Landscaping to be determined here.|
I painted the wood on the porch wall the neutral (and over the garage, which you can't see here). Updated the porch light and the front door.
We still need to replace the windows on the porch, but it's SO much better already!
