This is the house BEFORE
This is the house AFTER!
Here is a side view (you can see the broken windows boarded up here) and the weeds before they were cleaned. The weeds were so bad you couldn't even walk to the house.
Here is the side view now!
I did all the landscaping! I planted lots of roses, hydrangeas, foxgloves, gerbera daisies, geraniums, grass, etc. All the plants are purple or yellow in color with hints of pink and orange.
We tried to keep the inside of the house vintage looking. There was an old pot belly stove that was in the house when it was first built. Someone stole it when it was vacate so we hunted around and found one from the 1890's era. It was once in a train!
This is the original fireplace from when the house was built in 1914. You can tell years ago they used it for cooking. It is built for cooking and not for heating.
My husband and I accomplished a lot in only 2 months! Our neighbors have thanked us for taking this horrible eye sore and making it pretty again. All the avocado trees are coming back in fact I picked a huge basket and gave them out to some of the neighbors!
