It’s done (for this year). Here are some of my choice pics of the ordeal that was my summer.
Now for the final reveal pics! After all, the paint, fixtures and (minimal) landscaping are all about the final overall image. Please keep in mind that yes, I know there is still a boatload of work to be done.
Oh, you need a reminder? Here you go.
Oh, you want an original, original? How about this one?
The work never stops. We’ve started saving up for a total re-do of the side of the garage area. A solution to the cracking and wrong-sloping concrete is imperative, the retaining wall needs to be replaced, and the steps to the gate are beyond disrepair. Reworking the side is going to solve some other issues, too. But we’ll deal with that once we’ve hit the savings threshold.
For now, we’re going to enjoy the comfort, safety and security these completed projects bring. We’re good on the roof till the next “catastrophic hail event.” We’re good on house paint for another 8-10 years. The lights should serve us well for years. And the front door — well, shut the front door! Just in time for holiday planning, I’m calling this one a wrap.
