Here is a peak at our house. As you can see, not much has happened to the exterior yet. We removed shrubs that were overgrown and hiding the front window, replaced the windows and this summer added a new roof. I am working on a color scheme and some landscaping ideas for next summer. I can hardly wait for a new front door, siding and lots of white trim. The front stoop needs repair and a new walkway will be installed too. We removed (by hand!)a ton of limestone from the foundation when we made repairs and from the back half of the house when we added the addition. It will be reused in the landscaping, walkways and gardens when we get to that stage. So, the exterior is still an eyesore, but I think it has potential!
