BACK OF HOUSE
Everyone always asks me..."what's that building back there?" Well that building is attached to my garage and Jerry used it as a work area. Jerry was a motorcycle pinstriper and customizer so his shop was back there. By the time I bought DeluxeVille, the workshop was literally falling down from lack of care. Notice the plastic on the roof...my Dad did that to try to save it through the winter because the plan was to rip it down and rebuild it the following summer. I was planning on making it my studio space!
Check out my new studio space! Slant roof, sky lights, new window and door! Thanks to my Dad because he guided me on this big project. MaryDeluxe has the best Dad ever!!! He told me it was up to me to finish the interior but he would help me build it. Interior still not finished but it's still on the list! This is also the project I discovered that I can't do roofing and I lay my shingles crooked which meant that Dad had to rip them all out and do it again...yup, roofing and MaryDeluxe= epic fail! Notice, I've also gone a weee bit plant crazy and added privacy fencing on both side because high fences make good neighbors!
My awesome Daddy Deluxe!! Thanks Daddy!
I love sitting out here at night!
One year I dug a fish pond...just because???
The ugly of my back porch! The little shed to the left was an outside entrance to the basement. It was falling down too. We took it down and put metal doors on instead. I still need to fix my porch and right now there's a car jack holding it up! I need to replace a post...hahaha I impressed the Sgt with that one :-)
FRONT OF HOUSE
The first summer I lived here, I took down the front section of trellis. Once again, WTF Jerry??? That's when I met my neighbor from across the street "Harley" I call him this because he's a Harley guy and has even taken me out for rides. Harley is in his 70's and tattooed all over...he even has a cute little butterfly on his neck which takes away from his scary persona...no man with a butterfly tattooed on his neck can be that bad! hahaha Harley and I have a great friendship, I borrow things from him like tools and he watches out for me like I'm his daughter. I can't get away with ANYTHING around here.
Grass be gone!!!
