Looking Good

When you look at the picture in the banner above and the pics in this post, the transformation is obvious.

We've still got things to do ... like replace the front fence .... but that's next on our list after we save a few more dollars,
This renovating caper is expensive.
And we need curtains and blinds and paving .... and we'd love a wood fired oven in the back garden.

But we're not in any hurry.
We're here and we're not moving.
We're so very happy in the house that Ben built.

Look At Me Now

Yes dear reader it's been a long time ... but look at me now.

We've in, we're settled and it's like we never left.
I'll be updating some pics over the next little while to show you how the House That Ben Built is faring.

These pics show the back of the house and the gorgeous curved wall.
We planted some mature white crepe myrtles and they are exactly what were were after, giving a lovely softness to the garden.
