Kevin's Porch

"We are the half tan, half olive green dalmatian poke-a-dot house." That is how I described our house to a friend who was coming over as I gave her directions. I didn't process that until after it came out of my mouth. Yes, I live in the half tan, half olive green dalmatian poke-a-dot house.

This is what our house looked like when we bought it.

(Gavin in his pajamas)One night while I was at the gym, Kevin decided to rip the rock off the house. He also put a huge hole in the wall in the laundry room (another post). And... the birth of the olive green dalmatian poke-a-dot house!(Gavin's bedroom window Kevin put in)
This weekend Kevin built a porch fence. I think it looks awesome, he did a really good job. Once again, I am totally impressed with his handyman skills!
I think I need a nice Nag's Head Hammock for the front porch... or just a white rocking chair from Lowe's.

The finest compliment anyone could ever give you would be to say that you accomplished something Aaron Jones could never do. Congratulations.

Hey Courtney!
I'm so excited that you guys got your house...we want to come see it (and bring you your stroller which I am embarassed I still have). The after pictures are looking great. I want to talk to you about Lakewood cuz we're considering moving there. Will you call me because I don't have your number in my phone anymore (thanks to the little guy who deleted all my contacts) me as soon as you get a chance.
