The New and Improved HQ……

Yep,the renovation of the HQ of TheGreatWall is starting to come to an end…




No longer does a PODS or a construction dumpster reside in my front yard!



What used to look like this…..



Now,looks like this…..


Still needs some touch ups

…like the house numbers?….and an entryway light fixture?


And a front garden totally destroyed by the best workers evah!

I forgive them….I do….

They really worked hard!



After two days of weeding,


…count ‘em


trash cans full of weeds and construction trash

(they tried,they really did,to clean up,but is my garden,after all…),

and trimming shrubs…


it now looks like this…


nothing that compost,mulch, and TLC won’t cure.


Accomplished so far….


New front doors…


The stucco people still need to come back and stucco around them.Also,need a paint job.

Still working on the color.

See the new light fixture sitting on the bench?

and the pumpkin?

I heart these doors!



All of the popcorn was taken off the ceilings-who invented that stuff anyways?


Ceilings and walls were refreshed and repainted.


A new staircase….


Along with a new wall ledge,new carpeting,all new and improved ceiling fan,TV  hung over the fireplace-went all wireless-w00t! No cords hanging all over the place!



A renovated office…


I had commercial grade carpet installed in here.Still need to hang the drapes.


Not to be outdone,the dining area was renovated,too….



Still to be done…

-New sliders and windows across the back of the HQ.

-And a new slider installed in the master bedroom.


Soooo…..guess I have no more excuses for not gardening.



Speaking of flowers,you didn’t think you’d get away without a picture –or two- of the ever delightful Miss Emma,did you?






She’s obviously a future gardener!


Much thanks to Erich,the Younger,and Kyle for moving me back into the HQ.

And Michael,the Elder,for the TV research and all the physical work.

Love those guys!

You have a new house, without all the expense of moving, etc. It all looks lovely.

Little Emma is a gem as always.

Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

Miss Em is definitely going to be a gardener. How wonderful to have a newly renovated house (and pool) inside and out...it looks great!
