Sometimes we don’t realize how much we’ve accomplished and for that reason, it’s good to sit back and take stock. We put in a flower bed next to the back patio and stairs off both sets of sliding doors before the July 4th weekend and TJ’s graduation party. I wanted to post some “before” and “after” pictures of how it looked before and after the flower bed, but when I went back through old photos I didn’t realize exactly how much we’ve done to the back of the house where the patio is now as demonstrated by these photos. When we bought the house there used to be on the house which we immediately had to remove to fix a foundation issue in the back.

 

REALLY, REALLY WAY WAY BEFORE (WE EVEN BOUGHT THE HOUSE):

This door with the windows is long gone and the other jutting section is now my office.

Maybe when we’re sitting out there on the patio on a summer evening, we can truly feel a sense of accomplishment after seeing these back to back.
