Our very spooky house!! (Picture)

61tinkerbellOctober 31, 2011

Today, our house was tented, looks pretty scary for Holloween! It does however, give us a much needed break, from working on this whole house renovation! We also leave to go on a 7 night cruise this weekend, so hopefully, our batteries will be fully recharged and we can wrap the messy inside stuff up and move in the first part of January!

We have installed old, reclaimed chicago bricks for the new parking pads and walk ways. Lawn irrigation has been installed and new landscape plants and grass will be next week! From Sunrise - work in progress

Nice brick, tinker! I hope you are going to choose plants appropriate for the period! :) A nice house like that deserves a setting which is also in the same style.

thanks columbusguy! I hope the landscape comes out as "old florida" style for the period. I don't have a green thumb at all, and we had 3 landscape designers offer us plans. I really wanted to keep a lot of the old stuff, but they all said it was past the season of healthy, and needed to come out. :( I don't think it will feel "old" looking for a year or 2, but here in FL everything grows super fast... so should look okay in a couple years.
