House Pictures

Hi, there. Hope you are all doing well. I finally have gotten around to taking pictures of the outside of the house. The weather is cooperating at least for today. I was trying to get a few of the older pictures posted so you could see a before and after. For some reason, I can't find them in my photo gallery. If you want to see before, you'll need to check out my Feb posts. Sorry. Here are a few of the after:

We had three attic windows in the house. Instead of paying to replace them, we opted to go with the vents. We think it looks just as nice.

The back door:

The bow window was one we didn't replace. We had several years ago. The fence underneath has bittersweet growing on it. Last fall was the first time in about 3 years that I had any berries. I didn't bloom the first year, got frosted out the second, and then finally last year...berries. Yeah!!! I hope this year will be even better.

The front porch steps. The middle one was completely crumbled apart. We had a mason come out to fix it. Well, the whole house has much of this foundation as well as the front porch,so all of it was redone and sealed. They did such a good job, you have trouble telling where it was fixed.

That's it for now. I haven't done any redoing this week. The kids are home for spring break so they have been helping me clean their rooms. It is amazing how much stuff three kids can accumulate. I'm off to do some more. Thanks for stopping by.

  8. I forgot to say that your house is BEAUTIFUL!....and I love that picture at the top of your blog! Janet :)

  9. Your home looks wonderful. We also live in an old house and should think about replacing the windows, but they are original from about 1869 and I just don't have the heart! Your heading pictures makes me homesick. I grew up on a farm and loved every minute of it. There is really nothing else like it in the whole world. Have a very blessed Easter, Dawn

  10. Melissa,

    What an absolutely amazing job you did on your home. It looks just beautiful. I'll bet it feels so good to have accomplished this task. I'm sure it was quite the undertaking. :)

    We live in an old farmhouse too. The house that we live in was the homeplace where his grandmother was born and raised. It is over 100 years old and I just love it. Landscaping will be one of my tasks to take on this spring.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. I enjoyed them so much. Oh~I also love the header picture. :)

    Hugs and blessings,
    Stacey @ Farm Wife Primitives
