The last couple of months have been quite busy. Recently I have been doing some overhauling of my home in preparation for putting it back onto the market to sell. The wood on my back patio has been replaced and oiled. We've done LOTS of cleaning, and some furniture rearrangement and have even been putting some stickers up to make it look a little nicer. The front verandah has been painted with special marine paint to waterproof it. And the local Churches of Christ were kind enough to send along a working bee to tidy up my garden last weekend.
|The old patio looked like this.|
|The first stage of replacing the wood found|
some lovely termites chewing on three
of the beams. Look out - increased cost!
|Murray tried to hide from my camera|
as he was working.
|Getting closer to completion.|
|The second last stage of the replacement.|
|The new patio looks fabulous!|
The old clothesline was also removed.
|The clothesline has been placed outside|
on the laundry wall, and can be lowered
to make more room on the patio.
|The front entrance has been tidied up|
and there are some new plants.
|Previously the old lounge room looked|
small and shabby.
|Now there are new curtains that make it|
look softer and more welcoming,
matching lounge covers and some
bright cushions to cheer the room up.
|The front of the house before the|
gardens were redone.
|The garden has been overhauled now|
and edging has been placed around them.
|Here's a closer view of the front gardens.|
