    We moved here 3 years ago, first picture is original with all the bushes, second is after some landscaping and a paint job this last summer 2010.. It is a lot of work!!! But I love it!

    I have always loved the Craftsman-style houses. Love the built-ins and everything. Maybe - someday - we will be settled again and be able to find one.

    Love the updated version. Have to have the front cleaned up so that you can sit on the porch. I hate having bushes 'in my face'. I would love to cut down the bushes of the house we are in now. Landlord said OK husband says NO. Oh well.

    You have a lovely home. The wide steps to the front porch and the porch are so inviting to sit on and wave Hi! to the neighbors. Very inviting home.
