When we first walked through our house, we never really noticed how terrible it looked from the outside. It’s clear we entered the back yard through the house because the view from this angle is even worse.
We said at the time that “all we’d have to do” is paint, redo the patio, underground the overhead wire, and landscape. Easier said then done. It’s still a shed addition that, for some unknown reason, is both shingled and stuccoed but we don’t care—we’ve finally got ourselves a back patio we can use!
