Before and After

I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that I love a good before and after shot...especially if it's a dramatic one!  For us, this is dramatic...or of the two!  This past weekend Nate finally let me convince him to chop down the trees that blocked our front entrance.  And by convinced he said he'd only do it if our realtor approved of it as well.  So I emailed her right away and she agreed, the large pines had to go...they were not only hogging our natural light but they were literally growing into the hand rails! 
Here's a shot of my lumberjack in action.  After he cut this tree down a snake came slithering out of the pile.  What did my hubster do?  Why he did what any other lumberjack would do.  Requested a Tupperware with a lid.  Caught the snake in said Tupperware.  And released the darn thing in the woods across the street. 
I provided the Tupperware.  And the screams from inside the house.  With the door locked.

It's not the craziest makeover ever...but it makes a HUGE difference for us!

From the front porch looking out you can see a more drastic difference.
The lumberjack was even given a double rainbow on Sunday for his efforts. :)

  1. Oh wow, that does make a big difference! Your home is just lovely. And, I appreciate the lumberjack removing the snake before the pumpkin party =)
