Exterior Pics of the New Place

Wanted to post some exterior pics of the house so that you could see what it looks like when the snow isn't all over the place...I took these last Fall. We have 3 huge honey locust trees in the backyard, a really nice maple tree to the right of the garage, a 30' tall pear tree (I'm sure you'll all want some pears...just ask our neighbors the Sabino's how many it produces and how good they are...there are plenty to go around), an English oak tree, and a red bud. As you can see there is a pretty good sized front and backyard to mow. I trimmed up the yews in the front of the house late last fall so they look way better now. I'm excited to do some exterior work since that is one of my hobbies. It's a release of mine to get some dirt under my finger nails...can thank my dad for his influence in my life along those lines...master gardener extraordinaire. In time we'll repaint the exterior as well and either paint the brick or put stone over it. Verdict is still out on that one. Eventually, I'll post some before and after pics of both the exterior and interior so you can see the changes we've made.

This week: finishing trim, painting walls, hanging light fixtures and ceiling fans, installing front door, installing new kitchen window, installing sliding patio door, plugging and switching, measuring for countertops, appliances are ordered. More to come....

If you need a pear picker let us know. We inheritied this super long picker thing with a little hook for picking and a little basket for catching the fruit. I'm not sure why the previous residents kept it around. The only thing our trees produce are walnuts and they have no problem falling on their own :-)
