Garage/Landscape Pictures

Hi everyone, I thought I would share with you the outside of the house. It's still far from complete but it's looking better! We decided to finish the garage walls. The drywallers did such a crappy job we had to texture the walls and ceiling. Sherwin Williams "Stone Lion" is on the walls, and extra white on the ceiling. I stained the stairs going into the house as well with Sherwin Williams Deskscapes - Cedar Bark. As you can see from the pictures below we have gotten the lawn seeded and some landscaping put in by Davey Tree. It has been a MESS! Hay everywhere, mud everywhere. It has only rained three times in the past two weeks so I can't wait to see the water bill :-) We have met some of the neighbors , everyone seems really nice and helpful. I hope you all are doing well and that your house is coming along just as you dreamed it would be.


  1. I love the idea of staining the steps. They look great! AND the garage looks awesome too. Great Job!!!

  2. I also love the idea of staining the steps! I never even thought to do that! I think the garage looks great and so does the texturing! I'm nervous about hiring landscapers. The front of our house is so wide and there's so much space that will need to be done. I don't even want to think about how much that's going to cost.....

  3. Thank you both! CMM - The landscape and lawn seeding was part of "our deal" so I am not sure how much it really cost, I do know we will have to pay someone to come back out and re seed because the back yard is not growing!!! Good luck with yours!

    1. I'm just lucky we get a fully sodded yard! It would be expensive to sod a 1/2 acre yard!

  4. The thought of seeding and growing gives me heartburn. Looking good!
