Adventure 21: Back Patio

The house is getting a new back patio out of terrazzo tiles. Right now it is in progress, so finished pictures coming soon.

Satellite View

Just google mapped the house. As you can see it is on a cul de sac, in which you enter from a small drive that opens up into a larger circle drive with greenery in the middle, and then that leads to a square shaped carport. The house looks like a big Z or a Tetris piece from above and then, as you can see, the large backyard is lined with trees! Such a great piece of land, property, and location in Dallas proper.

Adventure 20: Exterior Wood Walls

This week the exterior walls were textured with wood to compliment the adjacent concrete tile. The lower cedar boards got a deeper stain for some extra weather proofing.

Adventure 19: Front Door

A nice vintage orange door with contrast textures around it. I call it subtly fun!

Adventure 18: Kitchen bones

The kitchen is in process mode. Initially it was gutted. Over the past few days the floor has been leveled and the cabinet frames have been built and painted.
