I had almost forgotten just how bad the back of the house looked until Jan's comment on my last post that we've come a long way in a short amount of time.  This photo was taken in September of '09 before the shed was torn down, but the house looked pretty much the same up until this spring and early summer when I tore off the rest of the shingles and painted.  Ick. 

Here's the funny thing:  Next fall I'll probably post the photos of the picket fence and back yard as it looks now, with the unpainted fence, the cluttered patio, and the bare yard—the same photos I'm so proud of now—and say "ick" about those too. 


  1. The difference is like night and day! Great job!

  2. I'm glad you posted this. The progress really is impressive.

  3. You've done a great job! *pats Jayne on the back*
