We finished (for the most part) the streetside door today! Concrete poured and roof in place is a huge project down.
The siding will be put back after the addition to the living room is complete and the new energy efficient windows are installed. We are going to paint the OSB later this evening so I am going to wait to post pics, but this is a project we have been dreading (and excited for at the same time) since moving in.
I ordered my permaculture and companion planting books as we want the back (street) yard to be fully permacultured. The porch and entire front of the house will be planters for roses and other things. The majority of our plants will be edibles, but I love roses… so I get roses. 🙂
