Top 2 Reasons G.O. Bought Our House

Please view the 2 reasons G.O. agreed to buy our Dutch colonial foreclosure:

NUMBER ONE  —  THE GARAGE

It’s homely, strangely short + not that ginormous . . .

. . . which, sadly, kind of describes ME!

Va va va voom!

Va va va voom!

HA! — but I “keed”!

And I digress.

NUMBER TWO — THE SHED

This garden shed's on the huge side, meaning thumbs up from G.O.

(For a starter, that can crusher’s gotta go.)

Any-hoo, if you ask me, these forelorn structures should thank their lucky stars

we arrived, just in time to give them both their facelifts.

I’ve already described my hopes + dreams for that garage,

which is now sporting its new  + muy bueno charcoal gray roof.

And soon(er) than G.O. would like, my roof spire:

Can we please do this TO-day?  She asks.

Can we please do this TO-day? She asks.

He said something about it being “low on (his) priority list.

PLEASE.

It’s at the top of mine!

(Stay tuned.)

Now, to the shed.  It will soon have a colonial red steel roof.

Hello, gorgeous!

Hello, gorgeous!

Despite this ^^ colorful choice ^^

GO has been complaining about my ‘drab’ exterior color scheme.

Perhaps this is one reason why:

The darkest of dark charcoal gray!

It’s ^^ my color inspiration for the shed ^^ — something of the dark gray persuasion . . .

. . . in my favorite — the solid color stain.

Raven, please

Raven, please

But wait!  There’s more!

Those plain Jane plywood doors aren’t going to stay that way,

not when I’m around.

Here is my garage door inspiration, just down the street:

It’s hard to see, but there’s diagonal bead board here, people!

Consider it done! — on our shed’s plywood cheapies — + hopefully, soon!

    I say, if you’re on the roof already, why not place the piece de resistance? It’s like the cherry atop the whipped cream/new shingles.
    My old neighbor used to have a can crusher attached to his garage. About once a month we were all treated to about one hour of repetitive metal crunching noises. I kinda miss it (and that neighbor).
