Home is where the story begins

Well, as of May 30th we closed on our dream home, that is my mom and I did!
It has been the longest most stressful time of my life when it comes to houses!

Bedrooms:4 beds
Bathrooms:3 baths
Mobile / Manufactured:2,100 sq ft
Lot:1.87 acres

Property Includes:
2 bedroom,1 bath mother in law w/carport, fenced back yard and back storage
Large storage garage
Outdoor sauna
LARGE fully fenced garden space

I will be documenting all the changes and clean up to the house and property with tons of pictures! For now I will post all the "before pictures"

As of yesterday we got all moved in and the unpacking begins!

We are so excited!!

Almost 3 weeks since we moved in and some progress has begun since settling in!

Yesterday I was able to get the front flow beds cleared out from all invasive weeds and grass!! They look great!

Coopville is in the making, some little final touches as well as a coat of paint!!
The whole back end comes down fr easy cleaning and collecting of eggs

Here are some pictures :)

Great work so far. We are also in the process (slowlyyyyyy) of updating our home/landscaping that was built in the 50s. It is a tough job!

I want that tub!

Good work! Can't wait to see it all updated :)

Thank you, just got some new plants to put in the front bed in front of the stairs! The tomatoes and beans and pumpkins are ALL growing amazingly!
