pink fridges & stuff

Hey there, I thought it looked new and old at the same time! Good for you, I would love to do the same thing. Can't afford a $3000 plus fridge, and it's actually more of the space constraints - fitting it in where my vintage smaller one used to be. We should look into that, it would be like getting ...

Looks GREAT Sheryl! I just love it! We made our gates blend in as much as possible. We didn't want them to "invite" people into our backyard. We left off the handles and and most of the hinge hardware is hidden from the front. Your fence will look great painted an opaque color! That's what...

fun pictures

Hi there, enjoyed looking at your pictures.
I have a question about your fridge, what make and year is it? Did you have it painted?

We lost our pink fridge this year to fridge heaven.

Thanks

It's been a long process, from coming up with designs, to bidding it out (7 different companies) to taking trees down, to dealing with neighbors, you name it. It's done and we like it, and I guess that's all that matters :roll: Here are some pictures if anyone is interested. Thanks for all the input...

Hi, I live a block away from this house and go by it on a daily basis. There are a few weird things that have been done to the house. It originally had a carport, and now it is a garage that wasn't done quite right. I must say that carports are worthless in MN for so many reasons, and even though We...

The Louvertec stuff is SWEET! (and probably way out of our price range.) Today :roll: we are going with an "alternating bay" horizontal cedar fence. Looks like it will run us about $6000 for 170' of 6' western cedar without knots. I have never seen this fence up; we picked it out of an old...
