House 4, Week 8 - Patio Removal

I don't want to keep you in suspense.

Yes, the asphalt yard is gone! Sure, we might have been able to sell the house with a paved back yard, but the idea was just too much of an affront to the Mr. (and, I confess, to me as well). So he had the asphalt guy come in, break it up, and remove it. 


As long as we're outside, let's take a walk around the property.

Three more windows are in and Jimmy Scooby Doo was by with the boys to tidy up the yard as much as possible.

I was happy to discover there is, in fact, a yard and some stuff resembling grass as well.

 Now, here's a flashback to the before where you can see the dreaded wall of single paned, melt snow within a foot of the house, stupid glass.

No more! Now a nice, cozy bow window.

Plus new sliders in the back.

The back porch has been relieved of its 500 year old jalousie windows. I kind of like the open air feel, but the Mr. will be getting screens made.

Dumpster check! This is dumpster #2.

There was also some more of that invisible work going on (electrical and whatnot). But, not as dramatic to look at as dumpsters, right?


  1. It's coming along beautifully! So glad that the asphalt is gone.

  2. Obviously the Master and his mates could never get up to mischief cause they have been so darn busy! It's looking great.
    Hope you get to have a coldie at the end of the day.
    Cheers, Carol
