FHF: Home Remodel stage 2: Flourish part 2

As you may remember from part 1, Chris decided to work on the yard so we could enjoy it during the warm months, even if the house wasn't done yet. I am so glad that he did because with all these set backs on getting our building permits I'm at least happy that we have a gorgeous back yard to enjoy the summer in. And Evelyn is pretty happy about it too.

Everything you see below is all thanks to Chris. He built the planter and planted the flowers and trees. He totally built the pathway and fire pit and got the bench for free. He turned a barstool into a tree swing. He also bought ducks while I was out of town, built their cute little duck house and made their pond. I'm less than thrilled about that last bit.


  1. Wow, it looks so nice! Do you know when you will be able to start building the top of your house now?

    1. Thanks! We're still working on getting building permits. We're waiting for an engineer to sign some papers and hopefully we should be good to go. Cross your fingers!

  2. Yeah...then we just have to fight the city on installing curb and gutter, whatever though, if we lose it's just $6,000+ dollars out of our pocket.
