Carport

My husband is so smart he also had the carport moved forward, which gives us a better view of our property.

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.

  1. Happy New Year to both of you : )

    I’m happy for the both of you that things are coming together. It’s the start of a new year and good things are going to happen.

    I moved into my place this past fall and had just enough time to lay out the garden in front of my place before the holidays and cold weather set in. I’ve not started on my back yard (it’s a mess). I’ve got some ideas for the back yard. Like you, I can’t wait for the milder spring weather to start working on the yard.

    I’m looking forward to future “progress reports”.
