Whoa! All this time I've been blogging about my house and I never showed you a picture of my house. It actually looks nothing like this now, but I thought it would be a good idea to show you the before so you can anticipate the after. Keep in mind that the "after" is going to be much much after (later).
We ripped the entire porch off, which was a bummer because we had only planned on replacing the decking. We loved the roof because it had a lot of old scroll work that we will never be able to repeat (on our budget).
The house is now green as well. Green has been my favorite color since I was a child and remains to be. It's a sage color and the shutters, when we buy them, will be plum.
Oh welcome to Yuppyville.
