Project: Cute-ing of Cherry Hills West
CHW Rating Scale: Weekender/Call a Pro
It’s been nearly a year since I put an offer in on CHW. The first time I spotted this house I hated the junipers. Finally, after six, or eight, months, I ripped them out.
But I didn’t stop there. After tearing out the offending shrubbery I decided to sand, patch and paint the faux shutters and front door.
But wait! There’s more. I also (finally) installed a storm door. It’s a lot harder to install a storm door on your own kids. Phone a friend. Or two. Then drink lots of beer afterward.
In the spring I’ll install a sprinkler system and plant some water-wise plants to pull it all together. But for now it’s a huge improvement. Some times I look at my house and giggle. Then I think, damn, I did this!
