Manzanita Yardwork

Well, it's finally time to tackle the "outside" of the Manzanita Remodel!  Ryan has been pulling out shrubbery from the backyard for weeks...but Labor Day we all pitched in to start cleaning up the front.  With a giant pine tree looming over the landscaping and dropping pine needles at an alarming rate...it looked a little creepy and a lot messy.  We figured an empty "canvas" would be much easier to work with then a collection of half dead scraggly plants.  Here are before and "in progress" after photos.

and after a day of work

Most of the river bottom rock is going...we're thinking of 
putting a "free" sign on the pile and seeing what happens.
Lots of neighbors stopped by to welcome Ryan & Katie to the
neighborhood...hahaha, they've been there a year
but since the work has all been going on inside no one knew them.
Now the decision...to change the color of the house or not!
