Before and After

Our house is finally done - new roof, new siding, new gutters, new trim, new garage door, new lights on the front of the garage. It's like a brand new house!

Here's what it looked like before:

If you don't look too closely, you can't really see too much tornado damage.  It just gives you an idea of what the house looked like before.

And now: (No photo editing involved - unlike those ads for weight loss supplements showing an overweight before and a fit, trim, toned, bikini-wearing after.)
It's green!

And, from the back:

We really like the way it turned out and how the colors go together.  What do you think?


  1. I like it. Are you going to put up shutters again? If so, what color?

  2. We were going to put shutters back, but we hadn't figured out what color. Then, we got different windows than we expected, and the contractor added the extra trim around them to make them work. So, because of the wider trim, we don't really need shutters any more - which means we don't have to figure out what color to use! Which is nice.

    We still need to paint the front door, because it's the maroon color, and that just doesn't go with the rest of the house now.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
