Our Home Looks Great!

We've spent the past few weeks doing landscaping, painting the outside of our home, and putting up fake windows.

Last September when we bought the home I decided to put windows on the outside of the home because there were none on one side. That's not unusual except the side of our home that didn't have windows just happens to face the street. We are the only house out of over 300 homes in our park that didn't have windows facing the street.

I had something in mind to do, but when it came to actually doing it - I got really concerned that it would turn out tacky and unprofessional. It turned out great!

The neighbors were all anxious to see what it was going to look like, and a few didn't say they were concerned, but they looked concerned!

It turned out really nice, and so far all the neighbors have said it looks good. Tom, next door seemed a little sceptical, but made a nice comment to Mike after we got started that it looked nice. That made me feel better.

Mike painted the carport trim this morning and is now working on the back. We had completed two sides of the home. The east side that faces the street, and the south side which is the front of the home.

I think we'll be done with all of it in about two days.

I was also worried about the colors we chose. But I like the colors more and more everyday. They kind of grow on you.
