14 September, 2022 seen 296We had some great plans for this Summer's home remodeling works, unfortunately, we faced some obstacles, and decided to stop any further home remodeling works for this year. Despite being pretty upset about our situation, we still enjoyed a great Summer at our rural country property. Here I'm adding pictures, how it all looked in April 2017, make sure to…
Few days ago I announced start for Season 2 of our home remodeling adventures. We have some really big plans to achieve this year - like getting a water supply and constructing from scratch few walls. Also a bathroom is planned to be finished until end of this Summer.
But our home renovation tasks starts with outdoor territory. More precise with the big Spring cleanup. We had to clean area not only from old leaves and branches, but also from plastic bottles, cans and even TV picture tubes.
Let me introduce - The Big Spring Cleanup of 2016
Dump with old TV picture tubes, plastic bottles and cans
We got this together with house already last year. Previous owner (RIP) seems have collected TV picture tubes and sold nonferrous metal parts from them. I don't have other explanation why there can be so many of them at one place.
Sacks of dump
Today we collected 13 sacks of dump - 9 from TV dump, 4 old leaves and branches from garden. It will ask another 25 sacks to complete our Big Spring Cleanup.
The Big Spring Cleanup in the garden
Old leaves and branches, as well few cans and bottles. We didn't made cleanup here last year, so it's vital to perform cleanup here. Afterall I hope to see lovely landscaped territory here - it consist from apple orchard and cherry trees.
Flowers are essential for beautiful landscape surrounding house.
The Bottom Line
I believe landscaped territory makes 50% of home value.
