Before picture: notice the one window with brown casing? That's my fault...I insisted on adding that window because it has a pretty design in the glass. The windows were bought in bulk from leftover inventory and therefore CHEAP so I figured I'd manage to adapt it in with the rest somehow.
Now for the current photos:
See that the casing is white now? Thank you spray paint! Btw, the white on the siding is not my fault but from where the silicone/weather sealent hadn't dried before a big rain hit us, so it ran some. We think we can scrub it out.
There will be a retaining wall yet, that will run the length of the deck end.
Ignore the ladder and bricks.
View from the end of the front porch. Steps will go down from the large post. I'm thinking that post would be a good clothes line support...tee, hee.
