New Roof, New Paint.

Back in October we got a pretty bad hail storm. I mean, golf ball sized hail and bigger!

See? And, this was after it had melted in the yard a little.

Anyway, roofing companies and even car repair companies capitalized on that storm. At first we were like, "nah. It's fine. We don't need a new roof". Then by the 5th roofing company knocked on our door, Husband told him we probably didn't really get much damage, so we don't need a roof. That sales guy took him up on the roof and showed him that there was indeed quite a bit of damage. Plus we figured a new roof basically for free(we would have to pay our deductible, but that just comes out of the check they send us, so no money out of pocket) was a good idea.

We got the check and a new roof. Then we decided that it's definitely time to paint the exterior. We've been wanting to to this for some time. And since Husband can do anything himself, it was very inexpensive.

Here's a before picture of the exterior. Don't you just love that mauve paint?(Click on pictures to make larger for a better view)

And here it is now with a new roof and fresh coat of paint.

We decided to give the door a pop of color. Husband also added some trim to the door to make it look brand new! I wish I had taken a before picture. The middle piece was barely hanging on by a thread.
I'm so happy with the way it turned out.

We are doing the same, and I can't wait to see the end product.. Hopefully by next week or the week after everything should be complete!!
