The Crunchy Homestead.

These are the "Before" pictures.

This is what the house looked like when we first bought it.
We will be painting the exterior, adding bahama shutters, and lots of plants.

I love this place!! Just a simple little cottage with loads of potential. Its about half the size of the house we have in Phoenix and much simpler, but that makes it perfect. We'd like to give it a key west flair, but stay in keeping with our neighborhood in South Florida. The front yard will be a mixture of herbs, tropicals, and flowers, and I'm toying with the idea of a picket fence. The area directly behind the house will be our proper backyard for play and leisure. There is an outdoor shower against the garage that needs a new enclosure. I have lots of sketches for that.
The big expanse of grass, which is actually another two full lots, will hold the food forest and potager, as well as our detached office building.
I'm still dreaming from afar. Not yet there to begin digging in the dirt.
Another 24 days and counting!
OH! forgot to post....Management has given me the date of 6/12 as my last day in phx....first day on the job at home...6/22! : )
I'm a lucky girl!!!
