home improvement

After the new roof - kinda hard to tell how bad the paint was, tho

We've lived in our house for about 11 years now. The first major anything we did in the way of maintenance/improvement was last fall when we re-roofed and exterminated. I guess you could say we "celebrated" the big 10 year mark with a new hat (roof).

This year we're on "phase 2" of our long-neglected home improvement. Our very dry & thirsty house was begging for a new coat of paint which it finally received last month. Then, last week we had a new front door installed. It's beautiful and solid and it "whooshes" when it closes. I like that.

After new paint - a subtle change, but makes such a diff!

Next week we'll be having our trees trimmed. And can I say that I can't believe that the tree work is going to cost about the same as the paint job. But like I said, it's been 11 years. The work is going to make such a difference.

Oh, and I almost forgot ... a new garage door is also on the list of improvements to be made.

Curb appeal? Yeah... we'll have it.
