One year ago Chris and I saw this house that looked interesting...

Pin It

It was one year ago, on November 6th, that Chris and I first saw the house on Hope Mountain Road in Georgetown for the first time, my how time flies and how things change.  When we first saw the place I took a few pictures, we were back viewing the place about a week later and I took more.  I have "re-taken" those shots to compare things after that one year period.  Granted, we have not been living here for one year yet, it's only been six months, but there has been some change.  In this first set of pictures the change is not really noticeable.  Most of the work we have done has been down at the barn area and inside the house, but we'll start here.  When I get a chance to take a few more pictures I will post them.  Remember, you can click on the pictures for a larger view of them.

2009 - Looking back towards the main gate.

2010 - Vincent and Chris removed all of the red rock and roses that were not doing well.  The circle was not laid out properly, you couldn't drive around it.  We'll do something different at some point.

2009 - Looking towards the house / garage, although you can hardly see the house.

2010 - Again, more work done by Vincent and Chris to clear out a bunch of overgrowth in the front yard, getting us to a point where we can start from scratch.   A couple of decent size trees were removed as well.

2009 - Looking from the garage towards the house, it is in there, somewhere.

2010 - You can see the front of the house!

2009 - Barbara and Chris walking along the deck to the front door, hard to see the house to the right of the picture.

2010 - Once again you can see the house now!  Landscaping work ahead of us though!

2009 - Back of the house

2010 - Most visibly you can see we removed all of that juniper that was growing wild.
