Well, just in time for our San Francisco friends to come and stay for a few days, the painting is done. I got a dozen or so bags of bark mulch to lay around the edges of the house and it just looks like a million bucks. It's so fun to see things coming together.
The really cool thing is that it has been cause for celebration among many of the neighbors...and not just folks who live on our street. People swing by who just drive or bike by the house every day, or folks who had considered buying it. It's really cool to see everyone rallying for us.

Upper left is from 1904 (?) and the upper right is when we first bought the house. You could hardly even see this house from the street! Lower left is when we cut down the trees and trimmed back the others. And bottom right is today.
Wow. Wow. Wow. And now for some rest, friends, hookah, and beer!
