Step three done!

Did you know that there are 5 steps to getting everything done outside at our house? I didn't either! (step one and step two saga)We were lucky to have Carolyn and Kyle in town earlier this week to help us complete step three on the house: repaint the shutters and front porch. Dave has been talking about wanting to replace or paint the reddish shutters on our house for a while now. However, our house is tannish and the roof shingles are reddish, so we don't have a lot of options. Our neighbors down the street just painted their shutters a dark brown that we really like, so we decided to do the same thing. And they look great! Carolyn spend the better part of yesterday afternoon spray painting the shutters. It is unbelieveable how much of a difference the new shutters do in making the house look updated!
Dave and Kyle repainted the front porch after replacing a few boards that had rotted. I was lucky and got to work and take care of Dylan, no manual labor for me!
Step four is painting the garage door and step five is replacing the RR ties below the deck. Stay tuned!
