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.
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?
