Before Photos...... Landscaping in Highland

We're getting close. The old front yard landscaping has been removed and replaced. Photos of the new landscaping will be coming soon.

The RV pad is in. Unless I can find a good deal on a Uteliner, we'll have to use it as a basketball court instead!

The pergola is almost complete. Shannon, the stone mason, is working on the firepit today while her 5 month old daughter, Jade, is taking a nap in our laundry room.

No plans to tear into the native grassland to the west of the house. We'd hate to upset the grasshoppers. However, we will have some new sod right outside the lower patio.

Papa John and grandma Norda are planning to drive down this coming Saturday to inspect. We'll throw some hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill at about 12:30 (yes, the grill is now in working order) for all emmettville members who want to stop by! Just let us know if you can make it. We'd love to see you.


  1. We can't wait to see how things look in the flesh although the pictures suggest you have made some nice improvements already. We also plan to bring our appetites so we can try out the new grill. See you Saturday.

  2. Sweet. Wish we could be there, but we have church at that time (10-1 on saturday)

  3. Sounds like a fun filled Saturday! Clark and I will be in Sun Valley or we would love to be there, hanging out in the new back yard
