Naked House

Can you say that on a Blog? *whispering* "naked"?
Oh well...
My house is in fact in, without cover. Her plumage has been plucked. We are in fact, the world...BARE!

I now have to add to the list of things that the former owner did to ruin this house "Tree killer". He never pruned anything. The little branches that should have been pruned off never were, so they sucked the strength from the big heavy branches causing them to periodically (drumroll please) FALL OFF! We'd come home from work & there'd be a giant branch in the driveway, just sitting there for all the world like we'd planted it right in the middle of the drive. The big sequoia trees in the back were so full of sucker branches that the trees were actually dead. Really BIG trees, they even leaned a bit. (Thankfully not towards our house. Oops, did I say that out loud?)

Well, now we're totally exposed, which is:
#1- a bit unnerving, I feel like everyone can see in.
#2- VERY bright. A bit blinding actually.
#3 -Very ugly. The cost of removing them took away any money we had for landscaping for now. We are now the house you don't want to live next door to...again.

Take a look

you should look at as a brand new canvas. Not scary to the world who you think can see in (which they really can't) Think of all the exciting things you can paint on your canvas and all the exciting colors you can use doing it!!

That is sad! They were some nice trees. I'm sorry. At least you still have 1 in front!

I probably would not even recognize your house now if I drove by it! I think it looks really good - a fresh start.

How did I miss the fact that you have a pool! Somehow that one slipped by me. I can't believe the difference between the before and after. Give it a few years and it will look totally different.
