Thanks for the tip on painting the posts black. That is something I will definitely try and see what that looks like! That is such a great look, I love that fencing!

Oh, I see what you mean about the porch roof. I will check that out!

Numbers off center... I didnt play with that, but I can. Where would you put the numbers, upper left?

With the winter weather, havent gotten much done at all, been mostly concentrating on indoor projects, building linen closet in laundry room, painting bathroom, bar, etc. When the weather warms up I will be able to finish painting the exterior windows, etc. I am going with...

This is the house that gave me the idea of just doing the planters in front. http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy133/TerriLynnC9/housewithplanters_zps52719a42.jpg http://i785.photobucket.com/albums/yy133/TerriLynnC9/housewithplantersside_zpsdb56dc2b.jpg I really like the look of it.

http://sdrdesign.com/lynn7.jpg A similar (red-block) house, seen here a few years back, to which I added (on paper) a louvered fence to hide a front-yard air conditioner unit. The blocks of this house had radiused vertical corners; does your brick have rounded corners too, Lynn ? SDR This side/rear...

Wow! Wow, wow, wow. That looks amazing. I really like the window screens. I will show this to my hubby. We are definitely planning a fence very much like you showed there. We need to screen off the A/C, provide a dog run and provide a bit more privacy to the rear and side of the house so this works ...

The house was designed with the open soffits, no gutters, and no shutters, my neighbor, the original resident of her home, is the same and confirms this. I just wanted to bring back the original look. The doubled rafter in two spots is a temporary repair until the roofer comes out to make wood rot r...

Thanks for the book recommendations. I would not mind losing some of the grass, but to be honest, I have not watered the lawn once since we moved in in April! I dont know if we have had an excessive amount of rain this year, but it honestly hasnt been a water hog as of yet. But I am considering some...

Well part of doing the potted plants was to reduce the watering. It really looks nice with the pond stone and the planters, and once I get the big plants into the pots I think it will help a lot. We are considering either the sky pencils or birds of paradise. I could do it in the rocks without the p...

Ok, here are some pics, this is before from the realtor listing. Unfortunately, most of these plants were either dead, full of weeds, etc., when we got the house. The plants were really a mish-mash of items, not consitent in what was planted. No plan for the landscape. [img] [img]http://i785.photobu...

Well, the interior we havent done much, other than refinish the original floors and paint in the kitchen. The one original bath was updated sometime in the 60's with cultured marble countertops and wood light fixtures, stick on linoleum tiles, etc., and again with the new white tub and shower enclos...

Newbie, Intro

Hello All! I just joined as I have just recently purchased a cute little 1952 Mid Century Modest house, as retrorenovation calls it. We are doing a bunch of work to it, painting inside and out, repairs, etc. I have some great items in the house, original hardwood floors under the carpet, so out went...

We just recently bought a home built in 1952 with open soffits. When we bought it one of the previous owners had added stupid plastic shutters and gutters and downspouts (from Home Depot - ick!) and it seems all of our wood rot and water problems stem from putting gutters where the house was never d...
