Anthony has been hard at it, lots of work getting done to the exterior of our new house. The roof is complete, stucco and brick have been going up all week. They are making some cypress sample boards so Danyale can decide what color stain she wants for the doors.

Below are the photos for this week.

Here is the view from our balcony.  Our neighbors house is so pretty, as is their landscaping.

Again, from the balcony we see the tree smack dab in the middle of our driveway. We’ll have to see about getting it moved. I love our neighbors garden wall. The colors change slightly throughout the year.

Here we see the brick being installed around back. The look Danyale chose calls for a mortar finish before the brick is painted.

This is the brick ready to be painted. Danyale chose a gas lantern from Bevolo to hang from this wall.

They have begun applying stucco around the rear of the house. When complete it will be lite, you can see a completed section on the second floor.

This is a shot of the back of the house. Once complete we should have plenty of covered space to enjoy the outdoors. A pool would go great where the photographer is standing. We’ll hold off on that until Anna Catherine is older.

Last but not least here is a shot of the garage ready to be painted. I wasn’t too keen on having the garage in the front of the house, but with our lot there was no other option. I’m looking forward to what Anthony, Ellen, and the landscaper do in the front of the house to soften it up and make it inviting.
