This was a summer project where Murphy and his law decided many things and that pesty can of worms kept opening with surprises along the way. But, it was all worth it. The before picture is far below and these are the after photos. Next summer I'll get some large, red, ceramic planters to fill with flora and fauna and new deck furniture to complete the transformation. We may bring the crew back to redo the trim in a dark green instead of the dark gray. We'll think about it over the winter.
