So we have new steps and they are beautiful. The place we used to put the trash is now wood underneath and not ground. The best part is that eventually, this will become a wrap around covered porch, like within the next two years. Can we say porch swing!? And MIL says we will put flower boxes on the outside railing!!! It's like a Waltons dream, I am so excited. AND AND AND... we are having a covered porch gazebo type thing in the lawn with HUGE flower boxes, like a raised bed, out front of it. I can not wait for the next two years :D
We are also going to be putting the dog kennel out front VERY soon. :D That means, we can use the back door and get that yard space back! Have a back porch eventually! And no more stinky dog smell cause this kennel will be on cement, not grass.
