And so it begins! I’m pretty excited that this side yard project is finally getting started. Just before the work began, we discovered something we hadn’t really thought about before…this side yard has a view! I don’t know why we hadn’t noticed it before, perhaps it was because we were always looking at the ground trying not to trip and die on our way to the backyard. Ha! It was a happy discovery and definitely inspired us with how much we are going to enjoy using this space as a destination and not just a pass through to the backyard.
I am already dreaming up a couple of special design details for this space, including this charming new light we ordered from Rejuvenation (Carson Wall Sconce) for the back porch, right next to our eventual Dutch door. I’ll be sharing more of our design vision for the exterior as this project continues to move along!
Usually with a big messy project like this it “will get worse before it gets better,” but so far we’ve felt the opposite. We were really happy to see that with the old concrete removed, it actually feels better already! :)
