As promised. . .some of the after pictures. . .

A few days ago I wrote this post telling about all of the work that we have been doing in the back yard.

As we were getting ready for our weekend party, I snapped a few photos of the current state of the yard. Granted, there is still a little more work left to do, but we are 95% done!

The tree house (so far) that we built out of the old deck wood. What you see here is the platform, deck and railing. . .Chuck still has to build the "house" part of it behind the railing - to the end of the platform.

Here is one look at the new patio and landscaping. Please excuse the fold up table against the back of the house. . .we were getting ready to set up the stereo for party tunes!!!

Here is another view of the new stuff. The three big windows that you see on the back of the house are going to be removed and French Doors are going to be put in. That is currently our sun room, but we are getting ready to turn it in to a family room. I'm pretty excited!
I'll post more, updated photos as soon as we complete even more of our projects!
