Finally...new pics of the Yucky House

Here's what it looked like before. The yard was completely taken over by weeds. The retaining wall needed a lot of help. The trees were overgrown, needed a new roof, the list goes on.
Here's an up -close of the house now. I wish the shadows wouldn't have been so bad in these pics. I'll have to take some better ones. There are sheets in the windows, so that still looks a little ghetto, but the rest of the outside looks nice. New roof, front door, mailbox, house numbers, lighting fixture, and paint.

We pruned the trees (or tore them out completely), planted sod, fixed the retaining wall, put up a new fence in back. With the shadows these pics don't really do it justice, I'll take more. Click HERE to check out the before and after backyard pics.

It looks great!! I think the most noticeable change -- from pictures, of course -- is the steps, they look newly painted. Very nice! :)
