First of all, here is a photo of the exterior at the end of last summer.
As Ryan & I like to sit in the recliner and look out the window at the birds at the feeder hanging from the tree, I chose to get plain glass that do not open and do not have any dividers in them. Even though they are the same size as the last ones, the plain glass makes them feel so much bigger!
So thankful for my Daddy . . . he's always willing to lend a helping hand!
I recommend locals to buy their windows from KBS. You know that I am a budget shopper BIG TIME so I called everywhere in Moncton for quotes. Kent's retail prices were much cheaper!! I clarified 'retail' because as an employee, I got even bigger discounts beyond that! Yay, me! :)
I had originally planned to keep it as cheap as possible. Say what? LOL. Anyway, I was going to reuse the landscape rock. Ryan pointed out that it would be a ton of work filtering out the rock from ground and weeds. AND. he really likes the look of mulch and wanted that. So, black mulch it was. He purchased it from a landscape place in Moncton, loading it onto the utility trailer.
Anyway, forgetting all that mumble jumbo, the moral of that story is that going from a paint to stain may not result in an exact match even when using the exact same colour name.
The last part of the process was to put sod in the areas we didn't choose to put back into the landscape beds. Ryan purchased the sod from my cousin who owns an excavating business locally, called Mountain Movers. And we bought grass seed from . . . . Kent!
