Yard Work

We are officially only 2 weeks away from the big move! Josh and I keep saying that we have no idea what we are going to do with all of our free time when the house is done. We spend most evenings over there looking at the progress made or not made. The actual process of moving seems very daunting, but we truly have loved every step of the home building experience. We are lucky to have a great team of people making everything happen!

One of the more noticeable changes on the exterior of the house is that we now have a yard. My mind is going wild with future projects. Here's what we started with...


Early construction...it kills me to see that beautiful tree laying on the ground there :( They did plant an oak and a maple in the front, however. They aren't as small as I thought they'd be, but they definitely need some time to mature.


Already starting to look better with all of the bamboo and brush cleared out. I have a feeling we are going to be killing bamboo shoots for a while...that stuff is crazy invasive.


And voila! Instant yard. I can't wait to plant some azaleas in the corners and have an herb garden. I'd also love a fig tree one day.


I have a feeling we will have a lot of fun out here in the future!
