It is so gratifying to take a house from this (sort of like a lady without her makeup on):
Then finally shutters and the sign were added--even the crew working on the house from Horton Remodeling cheered! Ta Daaaa!!
I feel like cheering too! I'm going to enjoy this little triumph for a few days and then it will be time to call in my brother, Bill Griffin, a Savannah landscape architect to create a beautiful setting for the house. Stay tuned!
