Beautiful house lutz!!

I cleaned out our carport all day today! And cleaned up the yard from some remodeling! I'll try to post some pics tonight.....
That's not mine. It's ridge rider.

I'll take a pic of mine and post it soon.

Rolled the back yard. It's roughly a acre and a half. Took over 2 hours. lol

well I finally got some time to upload some pictures of the house. I grew up in this house my whole life! My parents moved here in the 70's and put the aluminum siding that is on it now. same blue as it was when they put it on. Actually has held up very well right at 40 years. I have totally remodeled the inside of the house and done 90% of the work myself and saved tons of money. We put a metal roof on it and took off the little porch and put a A-frame over the front. along with a 40 ft deck. the different color you will see on the front of the A-frame and the left of the carport is hardy board and will get painted when we paint the house in a month or so maybe.... the carport also was closed in...you will see in the pics... I think there is about 3 post worth of them. ha so enjoy....

Dude, that's badass!

My wife wants to add something like that to our house.

How much you have into it roughly? Do it yourself?

Great day to work outside today. I cut down 2 small dead trees & broke them down to be hauled off. I also had last springs yard waste hauled off. :eek:

The materials for te porch and the A-frame were bought together and I think they were like 2500$.........which I thought was cheap! The roof and everything counting porch was like 5,000$

8ualive, I love the transformation! And thanks for the kind words on the house in which I currently reside (a.k.a my parents house ) lol but anyways, its modeled after the Southern Mansion in Cape May NJ. I'm in charge of all the landscaping, since that kind of stuff is right up my alley lol.
