In the meantime, this is a good excuse for me to post before and after pics from some of our earlier projects. They're all from years past, so not eligible for the current challenge:
K builds a deck . . .
The finished deck (with jungle tamed) from the other end . . .
Our little Eden in the back corner, with a terra cotta snake and SynLawn
When we first moved in, the house was surrounded by chain link fence,
with this gate . . .
and this corner . . .
became this corner . . .
Previous Owners enjoyed designing with eagles and plastic flowers
Their bedroom became our eagle-free guest room
with wall-mounted sling for our stuffed animals
and doubles as a home office with computer armoire . . .
