The Actual Yard Plan

>> 11.16.2010

Have you ever had one of those moments where you've told a handyman, painter, etc your ideas for a project then came back to find it... not quite as pictured. Well, it actually happened with my soon-to-be-husband (sorry, fiance just sounds weird) as we were laying out the pathway markers. There might or might not have been a bit of patio/ bed drama.
It's all a-okay now that I've drawn it out. So, for Nate (anyone else who might want a sneak peek),
the yard plan:

And the current progress shots:

We choose not to clean up the mess because it makes for more dramatic after pictures... and, yes, I'm sticking to that story.

The crushed granite is going in this weekend. Woo!

Anyone else have to draw out and color-code all of their renovation plans? Anyone jealous of my advanced Microsoft Paint skillz?

I have definitely used Microsoft Paint - it's so posh. And your progress shots are so dramatic, they need their own movie deal! ha

Haha, your paint skills are definitely superior to my hand drawn in under a minute sketches. Oh, and my hubby is no longer allowed to install curtain rods without me present for width control. ;)
