Landscape to show off your new remodel!
New big windows, new deck, or awesome new paint? Design your Landscaping to show it off. For windows, choose plants that are not too tall or that frame the window well – the right plant can also improve looking out from the window. It's all about getting that 'right look & feel', & making it come across…make sure to have the proper accent wall, borders, & paint color are lined up & ready to go! Make everything complement & accentuate ; that's the key here.
For new paint, choose a colorful flower or bush that makes the new house color pop! What style is your home? Research styles of Landscaping to increase the aesthetic of your home & play with combinations. Cottage style homes usually have a quaint & groomed lawn, but what about a natural garden full of diverse plants & flowers to add dimension & fun? Anything can go, & you alone have the final say in the matter.
Also remember to make good use of any rocks lying around, spreading them out evenly & beautifully. Distribute them by the front or back walkway. Make a path with them. Get creative on this.
Home remodeling can be a fun way to spruce up an old home or even a project abandoned house. Ask any homeowners & DIYers who have lived to tell their stories between foreclosures to fire damages & they will tell you that saving a house is no easy task.
A couple, Joe & Melissa P. turned a 100 year old abandoned house, who's last occupant was in 1970, into a beautiful restoration during their engagement & wedding planning. Transforming the old Wisconsin farmhouse with seven bedrooms & no indoor plumbing into a modern remodeling job took them over a year to accomplish including a new roof, new windows & restoration of three porches. Also on the punch list was new plumbing including two bathrooms & finishing rooms where racoons, honeybee's & other critters had been living. The project turned the once abandoned home into a stunning living, breathing home.
Another couple, Virginia Walt & Patricia Purcell found a fire damaged cottage while visiting their son & daughter-in-law during a family vacation to Petersburg. The kids had bought the adjacent, larger house as a vacation getaway & potential retirement spot for their parents. The home next door was abandoned for twenty years after a fire destroyed the interior, & the windows & doors were charred or boarded up. Many people might run away at the thought of restoring an old home that was built in 1850 but the couple fell in love with the old red brick house with white lintels of solid granite & turned it into a home to spend their retirement in together.
