Have I mentioned how much I hate my front yard? Dude, I abhor it! I can't even believe I bought this house based on the way the front yard looks. It's just SO ODD! And my home has absolutely not even a shred of curb appeal.
My last house was so cute. A little boxy brick bungalo with a little porch and a walk from the porch straight out to the sidewalk. The front yard was small and I had white petunias lining the walk on either side. It was charming and no surprise that it sold in 1 days without even having to list it or put a sign out.
This house on the other hand is the exact opposite. Driving by, you don't even notice it. For 3 months after buying it, I'd drive right past it without seeing it...completely missing my driveway.
That is hopefully about to change. The completely ineffective 1-car detached garage is coming down, as is the circular driveway that, while it is supposed to make pulling out onto a busy street easier, actually makes parking a nightmare. All of this is to be replaced by a real driveway with a turnaround, 2-car garage and a leveled-out front yard complete with rock walls, auto sprinklers and drought tolerant landscaping.
Before that happens though, the asbestos inspector needs to perform his $300 test. What the freak people? $300 to sniff around at my garage?
Well, I guess people might think I'm over-priced too.
