Backyard Transformation: Part 1 – The Big Clean Up

Pressure wash before afterLately, our weekends have been so busy! We have been focused on fixing up our backyard for a while now. We didn’t really know where to start except to just simply clean up. What better way than giving the house a little wash down! We borrowed a pressure washer from Levi’s folks and got to work. What a difference it made!!!

We pressure washed the concrete patio, vinyl, as well as the stucco surrounding the whole back of the house. Looks like new.

The next part of the clean up was our lighting situation. Levi changed out all the electrical switches on our corner lights, while I went looking for a new fixture by the door. Lighting – check!

The following weekend, we wanted to take care of the messy windows. By messy, I mean FALLING APART! Here is what the original window looked like. YIKES>>>>

Levi decided to replace the old wood. Then, wrap some brown metal (using a metal break) around the wood to prevent it from rotting  – not to mention making it look smooth and clean. Levi did this for another window on the other side of the house as well.


“The Big Clean Up” took a couple weekends, but worth it! More to come!!
