As a true Canadian, we are always discussing the current weather patterns and counting the days until Spring. At Paint It Like New! Inc. we plan our marketing months in advance. We are currently picking our art work for the April Issues of decorating magazines. With the warm winter we have experienced so far, it is difficult not to start thinking about the great outdoors.
As you may remember, I moved last summer. In September I managed to get the new fence installed, the back yard regraded and some basic planting done. As part of the interior renovation, we installed a new door off of the dining room and a small deck to the outside. The final job was a new cedar shingle roof for the original gazebo on the property which was completed in October! (Thanks Dave and Terry!!)
Some before pictures. The new deck is just off to the side. There was an old metal shed beside the pile of bricks. No, not very pretty…and VERY OVERGROWN…giant ferns…..ugh!
Some pictures, after the new fence went up and the ground was regraded. The yard is quite generous in size and it was necessary to divide it into “rooms.”
