Hello and Happy New Year!
I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Dale and I have taken a break from everything!! We needed to retreat and refresh and spend some time enjoying our new home. Believe me, we are now ready for some projects. Ha-Ha! I would like to continue to show you what we have done to the outside construction of our home.
The carport is now complete! Mr. Garza our concrete guy and his crew set the metal carport on the knee wall, they did a wonderful job. I am so happy Dale came up with the idea to have it raised! We have a much better sight line, before our view was block by the buildings cover.
My husband is so smart he also made arrangements to have the carport moved forward, which gives us a better view of our property when we are sitting on the back porch.

Having shrubs here was difficult to trim between the house and the carport. Having a sidewalk is much better for this space.

You can see it really looks clean and sleek. Since we had to remove the shrubs we decided to have a sidewalk installed instead. We are all about having things easier!
We extended the driveway for extra space for a patio/workspace and to meet the future ramp for the back porch.
The patio extends ten feet pass the carport.
I wanted to end this blog with a picture of the garden area.
In late December we had some warm weather so I took advantage of it by cleaning up my garden. I spent a day pressure washing the raised beds and washed all my pots. I am looking forward to planting some vegetables this spring. Very hopeful indeed.
Thank you for stopping by the Phillips Place and be sure to subscribe to my blog so you will not miss any future post.
Thank you Dale and Elizabeth Phillips
