As any homeowner knows, house projects are a never-ending to-do list. However, it can be fun to see how your house transforms over time. We’ve been changing a lot of things in our home in just a little over a year!
outside of our house last fall — we have since gotten new windows (without grids) and are in the process of tearing out the bushes in front for some new landscaping
Step 1: chopping off all the branches
Step 2: digging up the root

crazy wind and snowstorm destroyed our umbrella!
