We have been working on the outside of the house all summer. The problem is it gets so hot here that we can only work for a couple of hours in the morning or evening. The mister put up the shutters a couple weeks ago. They added so much to the character of the house. I love anything that adds to the cute factor. Putting in water lines, not so much.
Now picture a white picket fence and some window boxes. All on there way in the next few weeks.
