Planning on the Outside

Now that the weather is warm Paul and I are ready to start thinking about what to do for the outside of our house. The house pretty much looks the same on the outside as when we bought it back in October. We have already picked out the exterior paint colors and started on sketching the landscaping. We went to Garden Ridge and Lowes last night to pick up some pots and flowers. I am hoping to start working on the yard on Saturday while Paul is doing a photo shoot. Here are some things that need to be done:

  • paint the siding, trim, door, porch and back steps
  • replace backdoor
  • replace mailbox and house numbers
  • take down metal railing and replace with nice wood work
  • build a storage shed for the backyard
  • build a patio area
  • plant a small tree next to the house
  • plant shrubs in front of the house
  • dig up weeds around the 2 trees
  • plant flowers and greenry
  • maybe add a sculpture?

Here are the exterior colors we chose from Lowes, the brand is Olympic.

1. siding 2. trim/doors 3. porch/steps
