In our easy sweet reasonable negotiations with the bank to purchase this place, we FINALLY came to an agreement that the bank would put a new roof on the house as well as repair the termite damage. It was quite the fight, but well worth it!

Who’d thunk a roof would make SUCH a GIGANTO difference in the appearance of the house, but WOWSERS! We also removed all the bushes and the hedge.  I wanted to SEE the front porch!

I also should mention that I painted the front door red.  I thought this house was required to have a red door! Here is a better front door shot.

So, the house is ‘presentable’ from the outside!  Stay tuned for Kitchen Renovation, stage 1!
